In January, New York University student and superstar volunteer Sara Friedman celebrated her one-year anniversary as an in-house volunteer at FLU.

Devoting two full days a week to volunteering at FLU while enrolled full time in college hasn’t been easy. But for Sara the experience has been richly rewarding. Her work so far has included intake interviews, assisting at Single Stop intake sites, and drafting uncontested divorces. “It’s a learning experience every week,” Sara said.

“It sounds corny,” Sara says, “but I’m really inspired by everyone in FLU and the relationships that they have with their clients…I want to be able to help people and have the same kind of commitment level that the attorneys in FLU have.”

Now a rising senior and political science major, Sara will apply to law school next fall. Inspired by her work at FLU, she plans to become a domestic violence lawyer.
