YLA Mentor Application/Renewal 2020
Dear YLA Mentor or prospective mentor,
The Youth Law Academy, a project of Centro Legal de la Raza, seeks dedicated individuals interested in being part of an innovative program which is working towards increasing the number of students of color attending a four year university. Through leadership development, mentorships, college preparation, and career guidance, The Youth Law Academy encourages youth by supporting academic excellence as well as educational and professional opportunities in the law.
As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to serve as a role model and confidant to underserved high school students and while being part of the rich history of Centro Legal de la Raza, which has been empowering and serving our community for the past 50 years.
The program will consist of two mentorship functions per year, plus one or two mentorship activities that you are encouraged to do with your mentee (ex. invite them to visit your firm, invite them to interview you, and/or help review their college personal statement.) The commitment is for one year. As a mentor you will also be notified of other YLA events and opportunities to participate in our program.
Please fill out this form at your earliest convenience... & Thank you for supporting our program!
