YLS has been busy over the past month welcoming all of our newly admitted attorneys and getting back into the swing of things. Here’s a list of what we’ve been up to and what’s to come.
YLS is continuing to serve Hampton Elementary through its Book Buddies Program. The program pairs lawyers with classrooms at Hampton Elementary to read aloud to the class for thirty minutes to an hour. The great thing about the program is that it’s flexible—once you’re paired with a classroom, you work with the teacher to schedule mutually agreeable reading times. Our goal is to fully staff Hampton’s pre-K through second-grade classes and we are still short a few volunteers. If you are interested in signing up, please click here.
Swearing-In Ceremony/Bridge the Gap Program
YLS hosted its annual Bridge the Gap Program and Swearing-In Ceremony on Friday, October 14th. We welcomed 17 newly admitted attorneys. Thank you to all of the judges, members of the GBA, YLS board members, and newly admitted attorneys that made this day a success.
YLS has a new website! Check us out at www.greensboroyls.org. We will post information about upcoming events and ways to get involved. You can also follow us on Facebook (Greensboro Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section).
