Would you recommend Connecticut Women's Education & Legal Fund?

by Rayane A. (September 1, 2016)
I had a great experience volunteering at CWEALF. The staff is extremely helpful. The organization offers monthly trainings, and various resources. I've learned a lot about family law, employment law, discrimination, and the CT court system. It was definitely a pleasant time, and I am thankful that my volunteering experience at CWEALF lead me to a full time job at a growing law firm.

CWEALF is a place where you get to make a difference in the lives of women and men who are struggling with their issues. You not only learn about the legal system but how to empower people so they can solve their own problems. I definitely recommend volunteering at CWEALF.
