Position Overview

Project REAL is seeking a confident and outgoing individual to serve students in Clark County, Nevada with our Independence & You youth law experience. This position consists of balancing five tasks: Outreach, Relationship Development, & Event Management, Database management, and General Administrative Needs.

The right candidate will be excited by the prospect of developing new professional contacts in the Clark County School District’s schools, building long-term sustainable relationships with school administrators, and coordinating and overseeing at least 6 Youth Law Fairs annually that each serve 500-1,000 students.

The position is split between on and off seasons. On seasons (when students are in school) are primarily spent doing everything possible to organize and conduct at least six youth law fairs that serve no less than 6,000 students (total) each school year. During this on season, the bulk of direct service will involve:

  • Reaching out to schools in Clark County and setting appointments with administrators
  • Introducing those administrators to Project REAL and our Youth Law Fair Model
  • Scheduling and organizing a youth law fair at the school, or nearby at a local community center
  • Holding in class presentations (requires about 30 minutes of uninterrupted public speaking, to groups of 60-120 students at a time), for most days in October and February
  • Recruiting, training, and scheduling volunteers to staff the law fairs
  • Connecting students that are unable to attend the fairs with our publication “Independence & You”, and
  • Ensuring at least 6,000 students are positively impacted by their Project REAL experience

In the off-season, direct-service will be conducted at summer camps and community centers, however the bulk of work will be spent doing research and database entry and updates to aid in the following school year’s schedule being filled as quickly as possible.

Knowledge of the law and court-systems is helpful, but unnecessary.
