By volunteering with Court Watch you have the opportunity to work with others who share your values and interests in social justice, human rights, criminology, law, and sociology. No prior knowledge of the legal system is required. What matters is that you be an objective and unbiased observer who wishes to capture accurate data that could have a profound impact on the lives of future victims.

Volunteer Duties

I love the idea of observation and data-gathering to make change. What surprised me the most was how little we had progressed since the 1970s! It’s a solvable problem and the fact that courts can’t seem to get it right is extremely frustrating. I enjoy seeing the results of our work, like the 2017 opening of The Safe Passage Center. Lynn O. (Volunteer since 2015) Phyllis R. (Volunteer since 2015) Court Watch Montgomery is the best run, most organized volunteer group I have ever been involved with. From the initial training to mentoring of new volunteers, to continuing education of volunteers, to strategic sessions open to everyone within Court Watch, this organization has the brightest and the most collegial group of folks with whom I have been associated.

Additional Opportunities

As a mostly volunteer-based organization, we seek people with varied interests and talent. Volunteers interview and mentor new volunteers and interns; research and draft case studies; enter data in Excel spreadsheets; update social media sites; identify public speaking opportunities; and research key issues affecting Court Watch’s work.
