MLR14 posted a topic in Moving to the US and Your New Life In AmericaHi all! I just wanted to share a great option I found to help fill the time between entering on a K1 and EAD, particularly for those with interest int he health/counselling fields! So I took some time looking for online volunteer opportunities and they were few and far between, or didn't seem legitimate. However, I eventually found the Crisis Text Line. There's a short application, and they need a SSN for a background check, but it was a straight forward process. You complete an online training course first over 3 or 6 weeks (you choose). This in itself was so good for me. It gave me something to do while my husband was at work! Then after that you book shifts in 2 hour slots to reply to texters, and you don't even have to leave your home! Great for those in states where it's harder to get a driver's licence! It's a super rewarding thing to do, I feel much better just knowing I'm doing something with a positive effect on others. Happy to answer any questions that people might have!
emylady posted a topic in Finding Work in AmericaHi everyone, I entered the US on a K1 visa about 2 weeks ago, I'm not married yet (2 weeks to go! so no EAD/AOS yet) but I've found 2 opportunities that I wouldn't mind doing until I am able to work officially. They're both Intern work in my local area. I've google searched and come up with a lot of conflicting information about whether they'd see it as me working, so wanted to see if anyone has a definitive answer. Any good websites to read/USCIS information? Thanks in advance! Emily.
journeycc posted a topic in Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist VisasHello, Is it possible for an individual going through AOS to volunteer at a church? Because the EAD has not yet arrived, I was wondering if it would be OK to volunteer but how can one make sure that it fully counts as volunteering. Obviously it will be unpaid but are there any other requirements? I read somewhere it can't be a resume builder. Well, this is somewhat vague and open to interpretation. How can I make sure that it's a "bonafide" volunteering? Thanks!
