Share Your Legal Skills with a Young Apprentice
Several Stanford Law students have recently begun volunteering with Spark, a non-profit youth apprenticeship program, and more volunteers are needed. Spark matches middle-school youth in nearby Redwood City, CA, with apprenticeships in fields of their choice. Students have learned to fly planes, worked alongside surgeons, and have explored a variety of other professions with a mix of job-shadowing and mentoring. Students graduate with greater confidence, more motivation for their education, and valuable connections to supportive adults in their community.
The legal profession is always a popular choice among Spark students, and while several have apprenticed with local lawyers, Spark needs more volunteers. If you're interested in the opportunity to mentor a motivated young person and introduce them to your field, please contact Spark's Co-Director, Chris Balme, at email@example.com or 415 626.5470. By sharing your interest in law, you'll help a student gain the confidence, skills and support needed for their personal and academic success.
