End Distracted Driving Initiative
Our End Distracted Driving Initiative is already generating a

Driving Presentation. We are also continually seeking out volunteers to
visit high schools throughout Chicagoland to educate students on the
dangers of distracted driving. Learn

Mentor Legal Prep High School
The Young Lawyers Section is recruiting volunteers for Legal
Prep Academy’s Mentoring Program. The program matches experienced
professionals with Legal Prep sophomores, juniors, and seniors to
strengthen their confidence, professionalism, and responsibility. The
one-on-one meetings are held at the CBA Building monthly and are
structured around particular goals and lesson plans to help guide and
motivate the students to succeed in college and develop professionally.
Legal Prep asks that mentors make a one year commitment to the program.
