BBA Public Interest Leader Raquel Webster (National Grid USA) delivered an informative lesson
to 24 probationers on the rights and main legal issues relating to family
law, including paternity, child custody, visitation, and child support. Assisted by family
law specialist Brian McLaughlin, the duo was able address the multitude of
questions that the probationers brought to the table.
Raquel had to say about the session:
had an amazing experience presenting the family law workshop
materials. The program participants were extremely engaged and even took the time to express
how much they appreciated the workshop. One participant noted, 'this
was very insightful. I thought I knew some of this stuff based on my
experiences but I guess I didn’t.' This statement meant a lot to me and I am very
proud to have participated in the Community Reentry Readiness Program with
others from my PILP class.”
The final session in the pilot series will take place on
Wednesday, October 2nd and will cover the topic of Employment.
