Project SELF - Overview
With the goal of investing in tomorrow’s leaders, Project SELF (Summer Employment in Law Firms) provides high school juniors with paid, hands-on summer internships at local law firms and businesses. Project SELF works to reduce the risk of juvenile delinquency by providing youth with positive alternatives for spending their summers, access to professional and career environments they would not otherwise be exposed to, and the support of positive adult mentors.
At the Orange County Bar Foundation, we are proud of our long history of serving at-risk youth and their families. As we do so, we continue to seek private and public funds to support the valuable youth programs that we have sustained for over 30 years.
We greatly appreciate any new support we can gain. If you are interested in making a donation, please contact our Executive Director, Karen Ruan, at (714) 480-1925, ext. 101 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
