Kids at bus stops and school supplies on store racks mean that August has finally turned the page in summer, and September will usher in new experiences for young people across North Carolina. The start of the school year brings many opportunities, not just for students, but for legal professionals as well, particularly those volunteers serving students through the North Carolina Bar Foundation’s Lawyers in Schools programming.
Last year, 72 NCBF volunteers served more than 600 elementary, middle and high school students as well as dozens on college campuses, by bringing civic education, mentorship and literacy support at a time when these concepts have never seemed more important.
Throughout the fall, the NCBF will be seeking attorney, paralegal and law student volunteers in every corner of the state to help carry out programs such as Lawyers for Literacy, Lawyers as Guest Speakers, Career Fairs and Middle School Mock Trial. Learn more about NCBF pro bono and civic education programs.
All NCBF pro bono and civic education programs are made possible by individual gifts of support to the NCBF Annual Fund.
