The Pipeline Committee is responsible for developing educational programming targeted at middle school and high school students and creating initiatives to ensure a pathway to success in the legal and other professional fields. We also provide mentoring and volunteer services to Detroit grade schools.
One of our newest pipeline efforts is the WBA “AIM” Program- Advocating, Inspiring and Mentoring Program. Partnering with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit, mentors are paired with students from Osborne High School (9th– 12th grade).
Mentors will serve as “Career Buddies” and will participate in monthly mentoring sessions that help promote academic and personal success for high school youth.
Mentors have been paired with 19 youth from Osborne High School. AIM’s first session was held in November 2016. Students are bused to Lewis & Munday PC in downtown Detroit, who hosts the monthly sessions.
