Over the past ten years, The Law Society has supported the West Broadway Youth Outreach organization (WBYO) in a program to promote literacy and raise funds for the great work they do in our community. Since Lawyers for Literacy began over ten years ago in 2011, over $100,000 has been raised, with over 500 lawyers participating in reading to the WBYO kids. There are many children who struggle every day to understand information written at even a basic level. Many kids do not have an adult at home who reads to them or encourages them to read by sharing with them the joy of reading. The Law Society is proud to sponsor this event and encourages lawyers to get involved by raising funds and/or donating their time to read with a child for an hour or more.
