May 26, at the Nassau County Bar Association, was the annual Student Mentoring Program luncheon.
In this program, sponsored by the Bar Association, attorneys act as mentors to middle school students selected by guidance counselors, meeting with them on school premises twice monthly for 45 minutes during the school year. The one-on-one program permits mentor and student to develop a rapport, and motivates students to set and work towards positive goals.
Here is a picture of myself and my mentee at the luncheon - he honored me with a short speech thanking me for always talking about history and politics with him.
