SDCBA Community Outreach and Volunteer Opportunities
The SDCBA encourages every member to volunteer their time either in pro bono legal services or general community volunteer opportunities. Join the many SDCBA members who volunteer their time and efforts for a variety of community oriented events and activities. Looking for a way to get involved but don't know where to start?

The SDCBA offers attorneys, paralegals, judges and law students opportunities to work with in many environments including with "at risk" children. Programs currently include: literacy days, Porter Readers, conflict resolution skills and Peace Patrol training, mock trials presentations, various opportunities with California Partnership Law Academies (include mentorship, internships, mock job interviews and Senior Exhibition judging); Wills for Heroes, Annual Blood Drive in collaboration with Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, Bench Bar Senior Lunch Services, Annual Law Week Poster and Essay Contest, Service Members Civil Relief Act programming, Crawford High School Academy of Law mentoring, and the San Diego County High School Mock Trial Program. We also facilitate several "meet ups" where members can work on a community service project together i.e. Beach Clean-Ups, different walk-a-thons, and the annual Rock and Roll Marathon. Finally, the SDCBA, as the hub of the legal community, also provides information about different pro bono opportunities and other programs who are looking for volunteers.
