Summary

Eastern Michigan University is in the second year of a pilot program designed to promote law-related education and partnerships between the university and local communities. The collaborators in the project are the university, the Constitutional Rights Foundation, and the Taylor (Michigan) Public Schools. The goal of the project is to develop among high school student participants the knowledge, leadership skills, and attitudes that lead to success at school, at work, and in the community. Program activities during the project's first year included a leadership training retreat, "City Search" internships, work experience internships, a teacher institute, community meetings, school/community projects, an awards ceremony, and publications. The Taylor schools were eager to participate in the project and appointed several key citizens to serve on the project advisory board. Taylor students had an opportunity for a work experience within job sites rarely available to young people or adults. The first year of the project was highly successful. Many advisory board members, employers, community mentors, and community resource guests experienced close contact with the local school for the first time. (GJ)
