A passion for the community, a desire to help individuals self-actualize, basic computer proficiency, and some college background required!

Volunteer Navigators will undergo training for the Illinoislegalaid.org website and employ these skills to staff the Legal Self-Help Center Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to grow as professionals by receiving training from Illinois Legal Aid Online, including exercises, sample scripts, and observation hours at the center.  Additionally, volunteers will gain knowledge and skills by working under the supervision of an experienced attorney and learn professionalism in a legal work environment.  Further professional opportunities such as shadowing an attorney may be available to volunteers. Volunteers will have the opportunity to directly impact and serve the patrons of the legal self-help clinic. There will be a two hour training session with Illinoislegaid.org provided to volunteers.
