Osman Hasan, INCOMING 2L VOLUNTEER
"Due to my personal hardships, I felt that it was necessary for me to engage in pro bono work to assist those in similar situations. The Youth ID Project works to bridge barriers among at-risk and homeless youth in the Windsor-Essex community, as obtaining an ID can be as daunting as trying to navigate the world without one. Acquiring an ID enhances liberty and personal autonomy by influencing mobility, access to services, benefits, or even educational and employment opportunities. As institutional barriers have affected my personal documentation, my work with PBSC has been profoundly rewarding."
"PBSC grants Windsor Law students many experiential opportunities to put their skills to work in the community. In the 2020-2021 academic term, I was a volunteer with the Youth ID Clinic in partnership with the Downtown Windsor Mission. The Youth ID Clinic was a great way for law students to engage with local youth, practice legal and professional responsibility skills, and make a difference in the Windsor community as the city’s youth navigate a number of barriers.”
"My PBSC project gave my group members and I the opportunity to canvas feedback from our peers, and to help suggest positive changes to the way the Career Services Office communicates with the student body. I will definitely be returning to PBSC in 2L and I strongly recommend that 1Ls get involved in this incredible extracurricular opportunity!"
