Volunteer with TJC

So much of TJC’s success has been because of volunteers who have donated their time and expertise to help us when we are in need. If you want to be a part of TJC’s work, we have opportunities for volunteers both in and out of the office. See what opportunities we have below. If you have any questions, email our volunteer coordinator at jlorber@tnjustice.org.

Check out these volunteer opportunities we need help with right now:

Development Committee Member

We are looking for passionate and capable volunteers to join our Development Committee. The Development Committee meets on the first Thursday of every other month. The Committee helps engage our board and the community around fundraising tasks and events such as our Raising the Bar firm pledge program, Mother’s Day campaign, and year end giving. This is a wonderful opportunity to contribute your ideas to TJC, and meet our board members. Many previous Development Committee board members have moved onto our Board of Directors as well. If you have experience in Fundraising, Marketing, Event Planning, Corporate Giving, Graphic Design, or related areas it is a plus.

Fundraising Campaign Volunteers

We host several exciting fundraising campaigns during the year. During fundraising campaigns we often need help with short term tasks such as helping address envelopes, sorting data, and calling donors. If you are interested in helping on a short-term project, please let us know your availability and any tasks that might interest you. This is the perfect opportunity for someone who wants to help, but can only commit  a few days out of the year.

Spanish-Speaking Volunteer

Are you fluent in Spanish and English? Help us better serve the Spanish-speaking population in Tennessee. Tasks may include translation of documents and materials, intake interviews with potential clients, and outreach.

Human Resources Volunteer
Do you have experience working for human resources? Are you interested in helping a small non-profit with researching and reviewing policies that affect its personnel? We could use your help!

Client Database Volunteer

We are looking for volunteers who can help us with database organization. The tasks may be mundane, but you will gain insight into the inner organization and working of a law firm while helping us to track and monitor our work as best as possible. This is a vital task to TJC’s success.

Social Media Volunteer

Help us connect to donors, clients, volunteers and supporters through twitter and other social media platforms. This is a great opportunity for people who are naturals at social media, but want to learn about how to use it in a business setting. Just a small amount of time each week could make a huge difference.

Here are some other ways you can volunteer:

  • Serve on TJC’s Board of Directors, Development Committee or Public Relations Committee
  • Film and edit stories about our work and our clients
  • Help out at the office by stuffing envelopes or collecting client stories
  • Design TJC pamphlets and flyers for our outreach and  development work. If you are interested in a graphic design internship with us, please read more here.
  • Host a “meet and greet” for TJC at your home or office
  • Create content for our website and Facebook page to help us connect to our clients, supporters, and audience
  • Sponsor a community lecture
  • Take photographs of families who are being honored for our Mothers of the Year celebration
  • Take a 1-month pledge to be a part of our “Share Team”: on Facebook, share 2 of our posts every week for one month. Help us spread the word about TJC and help more Tennesseans!
