Wanna volunteer in Superior Court? According to a recent advertisement in the Washington Post, “D.C. Superior Court needs volunteers to assist with clerical work six to eight hours a week for at least three to six months. Work will not lead to paid positions.” The work consists entirely of “filing, photocopying, things of that nature,” says Anita Alexander of the Appeals Coordinator’s Office, which administers the program. Apparently, the court has been roping in bored retirees and bright-eyed students to help with all that extra paperwork for years. Cash-strapped college students needn’t fret about wasting their hours at the photocopier when they could be broadening their minds or wallets. “We can arrange college credit,” Alexander says.
