Generation Hope

Washington Lawyer

As part of its "Who We Serve" series, Washington Lawyer published a client profile on Generation Hope and its alliance with the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center. Founded in 2010, Generation Hope is a world-renowned nonprofit organization that helps teen parents enter and finish college through scholarships and numerous mentoring partnerships. In the profile, Blank Rome Of Counsel James S. Carter describes his insurance and risk-management work for the organization.

Article Excerpt:

Later in 2015, the Pro Bono Center had James S. Carter, then of Dickstein Shapiro LLP, help draft Generation Hope’s risk-management plan, permission forms, and waivers. “Good risk-management practices are essential to preserving and perpetuating a nonprofit organization’s mission if something unfortunate happens,” says Carter, who’s now with Blank Rome LLP. “Insurance and good risk-management practices can help nonprofit organizations attract quality volunteer directors and officers who want assurance that they would have coverage if they face liability in their capacity.”

"Generation Hope," by John Murph was published in the December 2018 edition of Washington Lawyer, the District of Columbia Bar magazine.
