Volunteer Opportunities for Non-Attorneys

Apply to volunteer with us! Our work would not be possible without the help of our volunteers. Our programs serve more than 9,000 people a year. We help the community’s most vulnerable members with accessing the justice system and strengthening their personal, professional, and economic security.

While many of JDC's volunteers are attorneys, we have volunteer opportunities for everyone. Whether you are an aspiring lawyer, a social services professional, or fluent in another language, we welcome your support. Take a look at some of our opportunities for non-attorneys below.

Legal Advice and Referral Clinic

The Legal Advice and Referral Clinic (LARC) is a walk-in legal clinic that occurs on 1-2 Saturdays per month.  Non-attorney volunteers can volunteer to conduct client intakes or act as interpreters (especially in Spanish, Mandarin, or Cantonese) at LARC.

Social Services

Through JDC’s holistic model, our social services staff come together with attorneys to address the clients’ legal as well as underlying psycho-social needs. If you are interested in volunteering and you are (or are a candidate for) an MSW , BASW , Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychiatrist or Psychologist, please email us at probono@sfbar.org.
