Be a change-maker! When you volunteer with CLC, you can help make a difference in the lives of children and youth in the foster care system. Volunteers play a vital role in furthering the mission of CLC to provide high-quality legal representation and advocacy to children and families throughout our community.

Volunteer Programs

Advocate for Educational Rights

When a foster youth’s parents are unable or unwilling to participate in the youth’s education, the court has to appoint a responsible adult to stand in the parents’ place. For foster youth who don’t have any family or friends who can fill that role, CLC recruits and trains volunteer education rights holders.

Fresh Outfitters

Fresh Outfitters was designed to give aging-out foster youth the opportunity to shop for new, cool clothing in a safe environment. We are always looking for new volunteers to ensure the shop is clean and organized, assist youth as they shop, and make them feel comfortable and safe, while providing assistance with sizes and fitting room.
