    #GAPABAVolunteersfor AVLF's Saturday Lawyer Program!



    Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018

    8:45 am - 12:00 noon

    Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF)

    235 Peachtree St., NE, Ste. 1750, North Tower, Atlanta, GA 30303


    FREE LUNCH PROVIDED!

    Organized by GAPABA's Community Service Committee. For questions, please contact Wellington Tzou or Andrew Leba at commserv@gapaba.org.


    For forty years, the Saturday Lawyer Program – AVLF’s oldest and largest program – has provided low-income Atlantans with access to volunteer attorneys and offered volunteer attorneys a chance to do meaningful pro bono work. Those opportunities continue, and we are constantly improving the program and volunteer supports to enhance the experience for all involved.


    Who Can Participate?

    Any attorney licensed to practice law in Georgia. No particular substantive expertise or litigation experience is necessary; most of our volunteers begin with no experience with our types of cases (click here for the training and support we provide). AVLF also has opportunities for a limited number of paralegals through the Saturday Paralegal Program to provide administrative support to the weekend clinic.


    What Do Volunteers Do?

    As a volunteer attorney, you can support the Saturday Lawyer Program in one or more ways:

    1. Volunteer on Saturday morning to interview potential clients, assess their claims, and determine which cases, if any, you want to accept for full representation
    2. Accept Saturday Lawyer cases for full representation, including those for which you conducted the initial interview and assessment on Saturday morning, or
    3. Consult with AVLF staff attorneys and AVLF volunteer attorneys about issues in which you have particular expertise.

    Cases accepted through this program focus on promoting safe and habitable housing and ensuring return of security deposits, resolving other landlord-tenant disputes, such as illegal evictions or damage to tenants’ property caused by landlords, securing unpaid wages, defending clients against wrongful debt lawsuits and garnishments and stopping harassment and unfair collection practices by debt collectors. Volunteers who accept cases receive a high level of training and support on their specific case from AVLF staff.


    How?

    No prior training is required; we train and support you before, during, and after your chosen Saturday(s). For questions, please contact Cole Thaler or Matilde Davis.

    Drink & Do Good! All admission fees will go towards a 

    non-profit partnering with GAPABA and KABA-GA: 

    The Global Village Project


    A special purpose middle school for newcomer refugee teenage girls with interrupted education


    Our mission is to develop a strong educational foundation for each student within a caring community using a strengths-based approach and intensive instruction in English language and literacy, academic subjects, and the arts.


    Our vision is to ensure that all refugee girls with interrupted schooling have access to the education necessary to pursue their dreams.


    Our program is designed specifically to equip recently arrived refugee girls with the academic and social knowledge needed for success in a high school or equivalency program. Many of our students have experienced interruptions and gaps in their formal education and come with limited print literacy experiences. Some are newcomers to school and have had no formal educational experiences before. We are a tuition-free school. Transportation and lunch are provided, thanks to our generous community of supporters. The GVP community includes students, staff, and a large core of committed volunteers. Our student-teacher ratio is very low and every student benefits from individual tutoring provided by volunteers.


    GVP students are all young women who share a history of displacement and resettlement, but are still a widely diverse group. We foster a caring environment that values and incorporates the richness of our students’ diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds and that nurtures students struggling with the trauma of displacement and war.
