Look for the launch of our newly named organization and website coming soon.

In the spring of 2013, the JTBF board of directors and advisory council, facilitated by JTBF staff, voted to change the organization name from Just The Beginning Foundation (JTBF) to Just The Beginning – A Pipeline Organization (JTB-APO) to more clearly define its overall mission and vision.

College Programs

The college students in the pipeline are referred to a variety of partnered organizations which have educational programs designed to provide participants substantive skills to strengthen their preparation for law school and the admissions process.

To accommodate the national reach of the Summer Legal Institute, JTBF has partnered with college level pipeline programs, such as CLEO, LegalTrek, Scholarship Chicago and PLUS,  in all areas of the country.

The college-aged scholars also act as mentors to the high school students and assist in pulling those students up to the next level of education.
