Thank you for your interest in Project Homeless Connect. Below are two videos. Both are several years old, but will give you a feel for the event, for the Legal Center, and for your role as a volunteer.
The videos below are both several years old, but will give you a feel for the event and your role as a volunteer.
The following rough video includes excerpts from a Legal Training held on May 5, 2008. (The full two-hour video and CLE credit are available from Susan Cole, firstname.lastname@example.org.) Please ignore the references in the video to the details of the event (time of volunteer shifts, location, color of t-shirts, etc.) since these change each time.
