BE A COURT TOUR GUIDE! Want to hang out in the courthouse and observe judges and attorneys practice their craft? Can you spare one morning a month? Does telling students about what goes on in the Multnomah County Courthouse and Justice Center sound like fun? Then, being a Classroom Law Project Court Tour Guide is perfect for you! Court tours begin in early October. Nearly 5,000 students, grades 5-12, visit the courthouse annually. Guides are needed to show them around. All you need is: a willingness to work with 30-60 students, chaperones, and teachers; one morning (8:30-noon) a month; basic knowledge of court system and interest in learning more. Classroom Law Project will provide training. Being an attorney is not required though obviously very helpful. Many court tour guides are former teachers or other civic-minded adults interested in sharing our judicial system with students. There will be an orientation luncheon for tour guides (both new and veteran) on Friday, September 10, 2010, at the CLP office in downtown Portland (RSVP requested). If you have friends who may be interested, please pass this along! Get more information, sign up to volunteer, and RSVP for our Court Tour Guide Orientation (on Friday, September 10) on our website at http://www.classroomlaw.org/programs/courthouse-experience/#guide. Questions? Contact Classroom Law Project at (503) 224-4424 or office@classroomlaw.org.
