Our Programs


Just The Beginning - A Pipeline Organization (JTB) ® offers free educational pipeline programming for students in middle school, high school, college, and law school with a mission to inspire under-represented, under-served and at-risk students and increase the diversity in the legal profession.  JTB offers educational and inspirational programming and follow up to under-served youth from disadvantaged, underexposed backgrounds and experiences, at no cost to participants as we lay the foundation for their educational and professional excellence. JTB provides a pathway to success for young adults through a learning and mentoring experience, which enables and encourages participants to explore the possibility, through academic achievement, of entering the law as their chosen career.
