Public Interest Internship

Location: 3333 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 550 Los Angeles California 90065
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Sep 11, 2018
Last Day: Dec 14, 2018



The Alliance for Children’s Rights provides free legal services and advocacy to protect the rights of impoverished and abused children and youth, so that they have safe, stable homes, and the healthcare and education they need to thrive. Clients include children in foster care, runaway and emancipating youth, relative and non-relative caregivers, and children with educational, physical and emotional disabilities. The Alliance staff includes lawyers, social workers, health care specialists, paralegals and advocates.

Interns will learn about the Los Angeles County dependency system and the resources available to those involved in the system by:

• Interacting directly with potential Alliance clients as our first point of contact with the client, performing initial client intake screenings.

• Answering phone calls and doing in-person assessments to gather basic facts about a client’s situation to see how the Alliance can best assist them.

• Working with an Alliance attorney to assess the caller’s legal needs, verify information and refer callers to appropriate resources.

• Attending court proceedings at ‘Adoption Days’, held at the Edmund D. Edelman Children’s Court.

Students work under the direction of staff attorneys to conduct research, prepare documents and correspondence, and develop resource and educational materials for clients.

This internship requires a time commitment of 8 hours per week: four hours per day, two days per week. Exact start/end dates are flexible on an individual basis.

Please submit resume and cover letter directly to volunteer@kids-alliance.org. Cover letter should indicate why student is interested in child advocacy, as well as availability with hours/week and desired start/end date.

*Spanish fluency is a bonus.

This position is unpaid, but we are happy to assist with course credit paperwork. We reimburse all volunteers for parking or for public transportation costs
