Volunteer opportunities for teenagers are available throughout the year in the Main Courthouse and Government Center in West Palm Beach. Volunteers work in one of several offices including County Criminal, Juvenile, Circuit Civil, Circuit Criminal, Family, Administration and Recording. Every effort is made to guarantee the volunteer and his/her assignment are well suited for each other. Volunteers assist with the many clerical needs of each department: filing, photocopying, creating and updating case files, researching microfilm documents and other tasks as necessary. Volunteers gain knowledge of the Palm Beach County judicial system while assisting Clerk employees and saving taxpayers money. Hours are flexible. Please call for more information.

* This may be a good summer activity, as the court hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Boca Raton students would need to allow time to commute.
