Illinois Legal Aid Online seeks volunteers for its exciting ‘LiveHelp’ program. LiveHelp is an innovative online chat service that allows people looking for legal information and self-help resources on IllinoisLegalAid.org to ask a remotely located LiveHelp Operator for assistance in navigating the website. LiveHelp volunteers provide direct person-to-person online help so that people in need of legal assistance can obtain the information they need to achieve more positive outcomes to their legal problems.
Volunteers can participate from any computer with internet access, making this a flexible volunteer opportunity that is ideal for busy students! You do not need to have any prior legal knowledge or experience, and you will receive training, supervision, and support from Illinois Legal Aid Online.
Volunteers are expected to commit to 2 hours per week for six months (50 hours). In addition, you must have English language proficiency and a stable internet connection. Please contact Fasharra Branagan at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Please note this is strictly a volunteer opportunity.
