The mentorship initiative is a new program developed by YLS in partnership with the Jacksonville Public Education Fund. The mentor initiative represents a proactive measure to improve the experience of students in Duval County—and, in turn, the future of our community—through the positive influence of mentors and unique educational experiences. In 2015, more than twenty local attorneys were paired with students from the most impoverished and underperforming public high school in the city. Students are chosen based on their interest in the legal field as a career path as well as their academic performance. Local attorneys received specialized training on how to effectively mentor troubled youth, and countless hours behind the scenes have gone into the organization of the program. In addition to the traditional one on one mentoring, we plan field trips and mock trials throughout the school year. Early returns have been beneficial and positive for all parties involved. This pilot program represents the first step in a long-term community partnership that will continue to grow as the years go by.
