YLS Imprint Program Orientation
The Imprint Program has returned for another great year of reading real books and corresponding with local high school students. This YLS Service to the Public Committee's popular program is a way for high school students to connect with young attorneys in their community and develop writing and analytical skills. Each student in the participating class will be paired up with a volunteer attorney. Both the attorney and the student will be assigned a novel to read over a two to three month period. The student and attorney will write approximately four letters apiece, discussing both their lives and interests as well as discussing the portion of the novel that was read that week. By the end of the program, the student and attorney will have developed a mentoring relationship and will have the chance to meet at an informal gathering celebrating the project.
Year-end Party: The first letters will go out in mid-February. To participate, you must be able to attend one of two program-end parties on Tuesday, May 13 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at Parkrose High School. Yes, a top requirement is that you relax and attend a party.
Volunteer Orientation: An orientation meeting for volunteers will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22 at the Standard Insurance Center, 900 SW 5th Ave. Attendance at the orientation is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged.
