Get Involved


Our staff, volunteers, interns, and network of advocates and supporters are the soul of our work. The work we do every day to change the system and support our clients would not be possible without a strong team working together to make it happen. We are an inclusive organization and strive to ensure every person has access to the resources they need to live with dignity and opportunity.

We would love for you to join our work by becoming a volunteer, applying for one of our career opportunities, interning with TJC, or joining our network of advocates.


Our regularly updated Action Center has plenty of tools that make the advocacy process easy to participate in! Grassroots folks help us connect real Tennesseans with decision-makers to share their stories and have their voices heard. From Medicaid expansion to strengthening SNAP, there is work to be done to improve our state.


Throughout the year, we have lots of events for our friends to enjoy with us! You can stay up to date on all of our upcoming events with our online calendar, so you won’t miss a thing.

Our biggest event of the year is our annual Mother’s Day event which honors our Mothers of the Year. You can check out past MOTY winners and view our 2020 virtual Mother’s Day luncheon here.


We are honored to have worked with some of the best lawyers in the country. These lawyers have generously donated their time and expertise to assist TJC and our clients to represent them and help them get the vital medical services they need. We recognize the importance of the work that our pro bono attorneys do by honoring them in our Pro Bono Hall of Fame. We celebrate by giving an annual award for the lawyer and law firm that have carried the torch for our clients.


We are so grateful for the staff, interns, and volunteers that have helped us get where we are today. TJC is a great place for driven and compassionate individuals to turn their passion into innovative change and assistance for our clients. We serve thousands of clients every year with the collaboration of our team, and we are always looking for new people to join in! From healthcare policy advocacy to office administration, we need volunteers of all skill-sets to become a part of the TJC family. Be sure to check out our latest volunteer projects and career opportunities.
