Looking for a pro bono opportunity you can do from your home or office?
Apply to become the volunteer coordinator for Reach Enumclaw; Seattle's only clinic that operates solely via Skype.
The volunteer coordinator is responsible for recruiting and scheduling an attorney to work from their home or office for each clinic session.This is a general advice clinic; thus, the attorneys can come from any background. There is only one attorney needed per clinic and there are only two clinics per month. A list is available to the volunteer coordinator, but the volunteer will need to reach out to attorneys to grow a list of additional volunteers. The present clinic serves South King County from the computer in the Enumclaw Library. This is a great opportunity for an attorney/legal professional who wants to volunteer for a start-up program on a flexible time schedule.
