Act – Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Georgia Innocence Project. In order to make the most effective use of our volunteers’ time, we have changed our application process.

If you are a law school student, college student, or high school student seeking an internship, please see our Internships page.

For other volunteer positions, we will post descriptions as the positions become available and ask that you apply for those that are of interest to you. If you have submitted an online Volunteer application in the past, we will send you an email to let you know when a new volunteer position has been posted on our website.

We appreciate your passion for our work. As a small nonprofit law office with a small staff, there are many aspects of our work that can benefit from volunteer assistance and expertise. However, our small size also limits our ability to effectively take on a large staff of volunteers. 

Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with the Georgia Innocence Project.

Volunteer Opportunity

Project: Develop a custom Google Chrome extension.

Skills: Programming experience (JS, HTML, CSS), experience developing browser extensions

Description: GIP needs assistance in developing a custom Chrome extension which will be used to send text to predefined webhooks. There is an existing open source Chrome extension, Send to Webhook, that can serve as a starting point for this project (GitHub repo).

The existing extension allows users to define webhooks in an ‘options’ screen after the extension has been installed, however we would like to develop a version where webhooks are defined before installation, so that we can deploy to users with preset options.
