A core aspect of the IndyBar Bar Leader Series program is the development and execution of a community service team projects by series participants. This facet of the program gives participants a unique opportunity to take community engagement a step farther by putting the knowledge and skills that they’ve learned in the series to practical use for the benefit of the community.
This series of posts will highlight the projects of Class XI of the Bar Leader Series as participants work together and develop their own original programs, resources or initiatives to benefit the Indianapolis community.
The Kids Team
The Kids Team will raise awareness of the Indiana Lifeline Law that was adopted in July 2012 by holding a poster contest at Butler University. The law provides immunity for crimes related to underage drinking and public intoxication for individuals who reveal themselves to law enforcement while seeking medical assistance for a person suffering from an alcohol-related health emergency, which should hopefully encourage young Hoosiers to take action that could save the life of someone in need.
The Kids Team will sponsor the poster contest at Butler University and promote the same via various on-campus promotions and speaking opportunities. Ultimately, the Kids Team envisions duplication of this project at other colleges and universities throughout Indiana.
Members of the Kids Team include: Chris Jeter, Barnes & Thornburg LLP; Derek Molter, Ice Miller LLP; Amy Carson, Mitchell Law Group; Kelly Doria, Indiana Public Retirement System; and Nicole Kelsey, Church Church Hittle & Antrim.
