Lawyers for Learning is a local program designed to assist our community's young people in improving their academic performance, self-esteem, and self-confidence, primarily through one-on-one tutoring.  Tutoring is open to all members of the Erie County legal community, including judges, attorneys, legal secretaries, paralegals, law students, and retirees.  Tutoring is a one-hour-per-week commitment.  You may also sign up to tutor with other colleagues if you want to share the weekly commitment. Sessions can be held any day Monday-Friday 8:00-9:00 a.m., Monday-Thursday 4:00-5:00 p.m., or Monday-Thursday 4:30-5:30 p.m.  Tutoring begins in mid-October and takes place at Buffalo School #18, 750 West Avenue in Buffalo. If you would like to volunteer to tutor a child, please  visit www.lawyersforlearning.org to submit your application. For more information or questions, please contact the Lawyers for Learning tutoring coordinator, Ashlyn Capote at amcapote@kslnlaw.com or 716-853-3801.
