Washington LawHelp Volunteers
NJP's Washington LawHelp Team is seeking volunteers to help review and test self-help legal media content for the statewide free legal help website, WashingtonLawHelp.org (managed and populated by NJP). Volunteers will provide user testing for the Washington LawHelp site and provide feedback about ease of access, content, readability, and general accessibility. We are seeking volunteers of diverse cultural backgrounds to help review the site, with an increased need for: 1) volunteers who are fluent in languages other than English, and 2) volunteers who are teens, elders, people of color, people living with disabilities, rurally-located, and/or low-income. Volunteers will provide feedback about navigating the website and understanding its content, and will have opportunities to participate in the site’s overhaul. Multilingual volunteers may have additional opportunities to help make audio recordings of pre-translated materials and scripts.
Time commitment can vary depending on the Team’s capacity, and responsibilities might vary according to the volunteers’ qualifications and abilities. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Charlotte Keenan at email@example.com with the subject line, “Washington LawHelp Volunteer” with a resume or brief statement of why you are interested.
