Winston and Strawn

Dodge Renaissance Academy is unique in its partnership with Winston and Strawn, LLP. Over the past six years, as a Winston and Strawn Campus, our Dodge students have benefited in numerous ways.

The Winston & Strawn Mentoring Program is central our partnership. Through the Mentoring Program, students in grades fifth through eighth are paired with legal professionals (mentors) who meet with them weekly at Dodge. During this time, students and their mentors build positive relationships, as well as focus on the 3 C’S: College, Careers and Current Events. Students and Mentors attend several field trips to the city’s cultural and recreational facilities. Each year, as a culminating activity, the students visit the offices of Winston and Strawn. They tour the workplace of their mentors, as well as participate in a mock trial. The Dodge Community is grateful to the program’s Mentors who give so generously of their time and talents. The lives of our students are enriched by the activities and relationships that are established through the Mentoring Program.
