Hartford High School Mentoring
The Hartford County Bar Association has teamed up with faculty and students at Hartford Public High School’s Law and Public Service Academy as part of a mentoring program. Through this program, students are able to work closely with local attorneys as they complete a series of assignments which are designed at expanding their knowledge of the state and federal judiciary systems. The mentoring program has provided a tremendous opportunity for students to meet with HCBA attorneys and to learn more about the legal profession and the vital role it plays in our everyday lives.
If you are interested in participating in the mentoring program, please contact the HCBA Office.
The Hartford County Bar Association (“HCBA”) is an active participant in the Connecticut Credit Abuse Resistance Education (“C.A.R.E.”) Program. The C.A.R.E. Program provides for attorneys, judges and business professionals to travel to Hartford area high schools in order to speak to junior and senior year students about the temptations and dangers of overspending, over use of credit cards and load facilities and damaging one’s personal credit history. Materials are furnished to students in participating classes during the presentation to help illustrate the points raised in the classroom and to serve as a reference for students as they encounter credit card applications at home and in stores and retail establishments.
If you are interested in participating in the C.A.R.E. Program, please contact the HCBA Office.
