Summer is almost up (calendar wise anyway, the Bay Area has its own mind when it comes to acceptable weather) and we're slowly getting back to the real world. School is starting for many of you, while others are getting back into the swing of things after some well-deserved vacation time. As you are making plans for the next few weeks, I urge to keep in mind exciting volunteer opportunities and BALIF networking events. I am hoping you all signed up for the Second Chance Legal Clinic, and a quick reminder that the clinic is happening today, with a happy hour to follow. Also mark Thursday, September 4th for our mentorship happy hour. I took part in the mentorship program last year and made a truly wonderful friend in my mentee, Sean. I am signed up again this year, this time I am looking for a mentor. I absolutely urge everyone of you to take advantage of this rewarding opportunity, and sign up for a knowledgeable mentor, or impart your wisdom to an enthusiastic mentee! If you want more information about the mentorship program, and to sign up, check out our website or email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you all at our future events!
