SDCBA Community Outreach and Volunteer Opportunities 

The SDCBA encourages all members to volunteer their time either in pro bono legal services or general community volunteer opportunities. Join the many SDCBA members who donate 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 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 (including 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, Servicemembers 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 and different walkathons.

Most Community Service Projects are reviewed and coordinated by the SDCBA's Community Service Committee.  To join the Community Service Committee and to receive notices of different community service opportunities, click here.
