Legal Ministry Volunteer Training

About this Opportunity
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” – Proverbs 31:8-9

All volunteers interested in serving with Open Hands Legal Services must attend this training. This Legal Ministry training will cover the basics of housing law and public service benefits in preparation for serving with the Open Hands Legal Services. After completing the training, volunteers can sign up to work directly with guests at food pantry/soup kitchens/service organizations throughout Manhattan to answer basic questions to enable them to learn about their rights. Volunteers do not need to be an attorney to serve with Open Hands as the training will give you enough knowledge for volunteers to assist the clients.

Attorneys can receive CEL credit for attending. 

Once you request more information through HFNY, you will be sent a link to complete your registration.
