Mentor a Legal Prep High School Student in 2017-18
Legal Prep Charter Academy is currently seeking mentors for its 2017-18 mentoring program. Mentors work with an individual student on a monthly basis. Legal Prep plans the programming centered around college and career readiness and transports students to the meeting location. Mentors are also welcome and encouraged to meet with students outside of the monthly meetings. The program is a great opportunity to influence the life of a high school student at Legal Prep and to serve as a role model for youth on the west side of Chicago.  Our students highly respect and value their relationships with their mentors. The program meets the first Thursday of the month from 4pm-6pm, typically at the Chicago Bar Association.  Click here to apply now! Contact Lena Walsh at with questions.
