Welcome back after your winter break. Enjoy the January Newsletter and make a resolution to put a little pro bono in your life this year. Jan 2020
United Way of the Midlands is recruiting volunteers for Juvenile Justice Jeopardy!
JJJ is a game– played with youth 12-18 years old that works towards fostering a better understanding of the justice system and legal rights, in addition to increasing positive interactions with law enforcement and peers. JJJ will be focused in Richland County, and we are planning to begin the project in early 2020.
We are seeking approximately 15 JJJ Leaders that would attend training in early February (either 2/7 or 2/8 9-11 a.m.) to learn how to lead the activity and commit to serving as a Game Leader for at least three 90-minute sessions during the next year. The sessions would be scheduled by United Way so the Game Leader’s responsibility would be to lead the game and master the game questions (which are customized to our local and state laws relative to youth).
To recruit our Game Leaders, we can make brief presentations at large group settings like an office staff meeting and are hosting a couple of information sessions:
Interest session #1: Friday, January 10th 8:00 a.m. United Way of the Midlands 1818 Blanding Street in Columbia
Interest session #2: Tuesday, January 14th 4 p.m. United Way of the Midlands 1818 Blanding Street in Columbia

Don’t forget to submit a Volunteer Enrollment Form. This lets the Pro Bono Program know who is involved in making a difference in the lives of children https://probono.scschooloflaw.org/forms/volunteer-enrollment-form/
December is more than exams!! They too will end and once they are in the rear mirror take a few moments to explore some Pro Bono options for the Winter Break and beyond
