WA OCLA Seeks Student Volunteer Consulting Opportunity

Posted: 6/4/2018 (Demography News)

The Washington State Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA) seeks assistance with updating the Client Demographics/Client Service Delivery Matrix used to plan and monitor the deployment of legal aid staff and pro bono capacity throughout Washington State. The work involves updating census-based information to reflect the most recent information from the 1-YR 2016 American Community Survey on a county-by-county and regional basis.  

This project offers the student volunteer a hands-on opportunity to gain familiarity with American Fact Finder and other US Census tools, find and select census data and see how such data is used to ensure equity of geographic access to civil legal aid services for low-income people in Washington State. Target Completion Date: September 15, 2018.

Interested parties should reach out to James Bamberger.

OCLA is an independent judicial branch agency that manages and oversees legislative and other public investments in the system that provides legal aid services to low-income people in Washington state.
