YLO: Youth + Law + Order

The Youth Link program is a partnership between the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Midlands (BGCM), the South Carolina Bar’s Young Lawyer Division and the City of Columbia Police Department that seeks to make a more meaningful connection between teens, young lawyers and law enforcement officers through program delivery and relationship-building. Initially, the program will be located at BGCM’s Norman Arnold Teen Center in the Rosewood community. The goal of the program is to increase knowledge and understanding of the laws and public policies that govern our daily lives while also creating positive interactions between youth, lawyers and law enforcement officers.
