Covenant House Vancouver is looking to expand our services to offer pro bono legal support to young people.
We are wanting to offer a legal clinic, housed on-site at Covenant House once a month for youth to have direct access to various legal supports.
Common legal support needs for youth are:
- Immigration support with refugee process, appeals, sponsoring family and support with forms
- Notary support for ID’s
- Family law
- Labour rights and abuses
- Criminal law as charges out of province can be challenging to manage
If you are a legal professional looking for a way to give back to vulnerable members of our community, we hope you will consider volunteering with Covenant House.
Don’t hesitate to email us if you have any questions about volunteering in this way or any way. Please contact Tobi Newman at 604-901-0161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
