Oregon’s Classroom Law Project (CLP) Multnomah County Courthouse Experience tour guide volunteer program is fun and educational and perfect for non-attorneys.
Orientation for the upcoming Courthouse Experience tour guide season will be held on Friday, September 9, 2011, at Noon. Sign up to meet other volunteers and CLP staff.
I volunteered last year and will sign up for another round. I met excellent co-volunteers, CLP staff members, lawyers, judges, and judicial staff all of whom cheerfully welcomed the CLP tour guides and the students who participated in the court tour program.
You don’t have to commit to more than one tour a month (about 3 hours, in the morning) and there are lots of experienced tour guides to show you the way.
How else can you voluntarily spend time in a courthouse when and where everyone is thrilled to see you?
