Young Lawyers Athletics
Each year the Young Lawyers Section sponsors a Dodgeball
team which competes in the River City Sports and Social
Club league. It's a great opportunity meet and socialize
with other attorneys and professionals in Richmond.
Games start the week of January 8th and are played
once a week between 6:30 and 9:00 p.m. on either Tuesday,
Wednesday or Thursday, with games genereally being
after 7:00 p.m. on Thursday. Space is limited,so participatns
are asked to commit to making the majority of the games.
If space is available, non-RBA YLS members may also
participate but will be responsible for paying the
standard amount charged by RCSSC (~$55). It is anticipated
that there will be no charge for RBA YLS members. If
you are interested, please email Jeremy Williams at email@example.com with your email address and shirt size on or before
midnight, December 4, 2012.
Lunch Buddy Program
The Richmond Bar Association Young Lawyers Section
is kicking off a great opportunity for lawyers to get
involved in the community and participate in a rewarding
experience with minimal time commitment. It's called
the Lunch Buddy Program at Fairfield Elementary School
in Richmond (8-10 minutes from downtown). The program
matches volunteers with children during their lunch
period for about 30 minutes of mentoring/just getting
to know the child each month. The program allows low-income
children to foster relationships with folks they otherwise
would not meet and hopefully get them on the path to
success! These children have very few role models in
their life and are in need of our mentorship and companionship.
The program requires a minimum commitment of 30 minutes
a month, but volunteers are encouraged to meet with
their lunch buddy as often as schedules allow.
In order to participate, there is a short application
to complete and a background check. Completing the
application should take no more than 5 to 10 minutes.
If you are interested in volunteering and giving back
in this very important, stress-free way, please contact
Kelly Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 358-6741.
When responding, please indicate whether you have a
gender and grade preference for your lunch buddy.
The program begins in October. Please express your
interest by October 5th.
