Legal Outreach prepares youth from underserved communities in NYC to compete at high academic levels, using intensive legal and educational programs to foster vision, develop skills, and facilitate the pursuit of higher education. We use legal programs as a catalyst to inspire young people to pursue academic excellence, but our main goal is to equip them with strong academic skills. Using professional exposure activities to draw in applicants, we identify promising 8th grader from underserved communities in NYC and immerse them in a rigorous, four-year regimen of academic instruction and support, known as “College Bound." Meeting after school, on weekends, and during the summers, our College Bound program gives each student more than 2,300 hours of additional college prep and guidance.
