Richardson Law Students and Waimānalo Keiki

Ka Huli Ao, and the law school, have developed a working relationship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Honolulu. The full partnership also includes Kamehameha Schools and the Honolulu Academy of Arts. We blogged about the early stages of the planning for this last November 13.

Law students serve as mentors to 6th, 7th and 8th graders from Waimānalo. Once a month, law students ("Bigs") meet with the Waimānalo keiki ("Littles") for some fun activities.

Law student mentors will meet with their young mentees in the spring of 2009 for a few hours each month. The program expects to provide a variety of activities that will foster a relationship between individual law students and elementary-intermediate school students.

Participating law students are: Aeri Yum, Amy Brinker, Barron Oda, Ha‗aheo Kaho‘ohalahala, Jennifer Humphries, Jennifer Lee, Jessica Domingo, Jessica Taba, Joni Domingues, Lianne Aoki, Mariah Carmichael, Page Kraker, Sari Sanchez, Sherilyn Tavares, and Stephen Wood.

We expect that both our Bigs and Littles will continue having fun as we move forward with this program. Mahalo to Big Brothers and Big Sisters for providing us with the photographs.
