Volunteer around the office: We have various needs for volunteers throughout the year. Assist with our Holiday Hope Drive and provide the District’s children with a happy holiday. Volunteer to make our annual Benefit a success. Help us maintain our extensive donations closet which provides clothes, books, toys and household items for our clients. Help organize and file documents, or help with data cleanup. Please note, our clients are confidential. Although we are a children's organization, volunteers will not work directly with our child clients.
If you're interested in volunteering, contact Rene Baez at email@example.com or (202) 467-4900 ext. 543 with your availability. If no opportunities are available we will save your information and contact you when volunteers are needed.

Law Clerk: Children's Law Center accepts applications from law students for clerkships seasonally. The deadline for summer 2013 clerk applications has passed.
Law clerks have a wide variety of responsibilities including conducting client intake, researching and writing legal memos and pleadings, interviewing clients and witnesses, locating social services resources for clients, attending court hearings, and accompanying attorneys on home and school visits. A good candidate will have strong interpersonal and writing skills, a solid academic background, a commitment to working with low-income populations, and a willingness and enthusiasm to complete all tasks. Candidates must be willing to work for at least 10 weeks.
Law students who wish to clerk at Children's Law Center will receive one-on-one supervision from an attorney. All law clerk positions are unpaid and can be taken for credit.
CLC is an equal opportunity employer. CLC’s policy is to provide equal opportunity at all times without regard to race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, family responsibility, physical or mental disability, medication or status as a veteran.
As a mental health professional, it’s a pleasure to work with Children’s Law Center because of their attention to the full spectrum of a child and family’s needs. I rely on CLC attorneys to provide background and insight.
Meaningful adult relationships are often few and far between for many of the children I see in neglect and abuse cases. It speaks volumes to me when a troubled adolescent names a CLC attorney as someone they trust.
CLC’s attorneys go above and beyond to understand the mental health aspects of their cases.
