Volunteer

The Victim Rights Law Center is leading a new response to sexual violence. As a VRLC intern or volunteer, you will make a difference in the lives of rape and sexual assault victims and help to rebuild their lives. Our volunteers share our commitment to end sexual violence.

Pro Bono Attorney Program

In providing civil legal assistance to sexual assault victims, the VRLC is grateful for the support of volunteer attorneys. Our pro bono attorney program, the Rape Survivors’ Law Project, pairs rape and sexual assault victims with VRLC-trained volunteer attorneys and paraprofessionals who help give them a voice in the legal system. If you are interested or have questions about our pro bono attorney program, please contact us.

Shining Star Gala 

The Shining Star Gala, which occurs annually in the fall, is planned by the all-volunteer Shining Star Gala Committee. It is the VRLC’s only annual fundraiser and it is so successful thanks to the help of generous volunteers. If you are interested in developing relationships for the VRLC, fundraising, selling tickets, assisting with the auction, or event planning, please contact us.

Internships

The VRLC often has internship opportunities for law students. Please contact our Massachusetts intern coordinator and/or Oregon intern coordinator to inquire about available law school internship opportunities at the VRLC. Click here for information on applying for future law school internships.

Leadership Opportunities

Serving on a Committee, as an Ambassador, an official Partner, or the Board of Directors is a very meaningful way to volunteer and support those we serve.

The Victim Rights Law Center's Board of Directors is a dedicated group of professionals committed to the mission of the organization. New members to the Board of Directors are typically recruited while volunteering with the organization.

The VRLC's Development Committee is currently recruiting volunteers. If you interested in fundraising or other leadership opportunities, please e-mail us
