Just Neighbors depends heavily on volunteers to do casework and perform the daily operations of the office. Short-term volunteers must commit to working at least three half-days per week during our intake hours (Tuesday–Friday, 9am–5pm), and speaking Spanish is highly recommended. Volunteers answer phones and complete client phone intakes in English and Spanish, work with clients and staff in preparing documents for immigration applications, perform basic office administrative duties, assist with social media and outreach, and, when applicable, help with oral and written translations. This is a great option for people who are job hunting and looking for experience in the legal field, as well as for students and recent grads.

Short-Term Outreach Volunteer:
Just Neighbors needs volunteers to give presentations to the local community on “Know Your Rights” and “Safety and Separation Planning” in English and/or Spanish. Volunteers will be trained by the Just Neighbors staff ahead of time and contacted on a “as needed” basis. Volunteers will be provided with the powerpoint slides, talking points and all handouts for the presentation.
