Search for ways to volunteer
Congratulations! You are probably thinking about or already are providing some sort of service as a volunteer. Volunteer service is a rewarding and much needed way to serve our community. The Access to Justice Committee of the Knoxville Bar Association knows that our organization is blessed with dedicated volunteers who are committed to help the less fortunate in our community. Our goal in developing this Online Volunteer Directory is to allow attorneys flexibility in serving the community by choosing the ways that best fit their individual skills and circumstances.
Our goal is to continually update this resource so if you are aware of other organizations in our community who help people in need, please contact the KBA Office at 865-522-6522.
Our community will be better because of the leadership and commitment of Knoxville lawyers. Find something in this directory that you care about and volunteer. If you are not already serving as a Pro Bono Project volunteer, please take the time to sign-up. The Pro Bono Project provides a number of opportunities for members of the legal community to give their time and resources to those who are unable to afford an attorney.
The volunteer handbook was printed in September 2012 and was made possible due to a donation from the Bench and Bar Fund from the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Tennessee. The material in the handbook was excerpted from the Compassion Coalition's Salt & Light Guidebook. The Knoxville Bar Association is grateful to the Compassion Coalition for permitting us to share this wonderful resource with our members. For more information, visit the Compassion Coalition's website at www.compassioncoalition.org.
To include your nonprofit organization in the list of agencies, please download the form and e-mail to Marsha Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org. The KBA Access to Justice Committee has developed a Volunteer Handbook that is available to KBA members. The handbook provides helpful information about how you can volunteer with area community service agencies and is in an easy-to-read format. Search for volunteer opportunities using the "Volunteer" tab on the home page of the KBA website. The material from the KBA's Volunteer handbook has been added to a searchable database so you can seach by agency name or category.
