There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities with the Clerk’s Office. Examples are listed below.
We have a recurring need for volunteers for various clerical projects. These tasks include filing paperwork, back scanning of court files, sorting, assembling and organizing materials, routing and delivering documents, etc.
We seek individuals who pay attention to details, can work independently, are dependable, have computer skills and can perform the physical aspects of the tasks they are assigned. These could involve standing, bending, stooping, reaching down and above shoulder level for filing. Not all activities involve filing so if someone is able to do sedentary paper work, that greatly benefits us as well.
Other examples of assignments in the Courts, Finance and Administration areas include:
- Legal research
- Policy and procedure documentation
- Technical writing
- Financial projects involving accounting and/or auditing
All volunteers are asked to provide a description of their educational background and work history when completing a Volunteer Application as well as other relevant information like a resume. This information is used to determine an appropriate volunteer assignment that will be rewarding to the volunteer as well as meet the Clerk's business needs.
All volunteer placements are contingent on a satisfactory background check.
