IRVINE, Calif. – June 15, 2021 -- Two high school juniors, from low to moderate-income families in Santa Ana are about to get a significant boost to their career path from CDF Labor Law LLP, a California-based labor, employment, and immigration law firm who will sponsor them for an eight-week, paid internship. This is CDF’s 10th year participating in the Project SELF mentoring program of at-risk youth.
Project SELF was established in 1995 by the Project Youth, Orange County Bar Foundation and the Orange County Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators with the goal to offer at-risk high school juniors, from low to moderate-income families in Santa Ana, the opportunity to complete an internship at a law firm or law-related business. Project SELF works to reduce the risk of juvenile delinquency by providing youth with positive alternatives for spending their summers, access to professional and career environments they would not otherwise be exposed to, and the support of positive adult mentors.
“CDF has seen the positive impact Project SELF has on our local youth and we are proud to continue to provide high school students with mentorship and professional development opportunities.” said Firm Managing Partner, Marie DiSante.
“We are thankful for CDF’s continued partnership and support over the years,” said Nancy Garcia, Associate Director at the Project Youth OCBF. Law firms like CDF help shape the future of our local youth by participating in this life-changing program.”
