Other Opportunities

The demand for Legal Aid’s services continues to grow as does the need for quality assistance from both legal and non-legal volunteers.  Legal Aid typically has volunteer positions that open in January, May and August.

The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland welcomes inquiries from community members, students and professionals who would like to volunteer their time and energy to assist our clients and serve low-income and vulnerable people in northeast Ohio.  In-house volunteer opportunities exist for people in any of the 5 counties served by Legal Aid (Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Lorain).

Requirements for volunteering with Legal Aid include a commitment to helping low-income persons; excellent communication skills; an ability to work independently and with a team; and respect for people of diverse cultures and communities.  Additional requirements include a proficiency in MS Office 2010; attention to detail; and the ability to handle multiple tasks.

To apply for an in-house volunteer position with Legal Aid, please review specific descriptions on the left.  Then, click on a link below for a specific opportunity to submit a cover letter and resume:

Your application will be reviewed and you may be contacted for a brief interview.  If invited to volunteer, you will be expected to attend a volunteer orientation and training before you can start.  Orientations for in-house volunteers typically occur in January, May and August.
