LLI Launches College Scholars Program
Thanks to a generous grant from Access Group, the Law and Leadership Institute (LLI) is launching an extension of the LLI program for our graduates during their college years. We now will be able to provide resources to LLI graduates who will be entering college in the fall of 2017 as well as the LLI graduates who already are enrolled in college. The goal of the LLI College Scholars program is to bridge the gap between high school graduation and acceptance into a post-secondary education institution by ensuring college academic success. The program will include workshops and seminars geared toward college issues held during holiday breaks, means of (re)connecting with other LLI alumni through reunions and social media, LSAT/GRE prep courses, and mentors for each participant.
As we launch the program, we are looking for volunteer mentors in all six of our host cities who have had academic success in college and (preferably) were admitted to law school, to share about their own experiences and give guidance to the college scholars as they navigate this new territory. Mentors will contact students at least four times a year, and at least twice after college graduation. If you are interested in volunteering your time to make a difference, please click here.
