The YLS seeks to stimulate the interest of attorneys within the BCBA and promotes professional understanding within the community. To be a member, the attorney must be in their first five years of practice in the Florida Bar or be under the age of 36. To keep its members connected, the YLS hosts several annual events.
One of these events is its Holiday in February, with the 2019 event occurring on February 9 at the Museum of Discovery and Science. The YLS partners with the Heart Gallery of Broward County and invites about 50 local foster children to spend the morning building gingerbread houses, completing arts and crafts projects, playing games, and getting their faces painted. Santa visits the children, and he passes out gifts to each child. Afterward, the children and chaperones spend the rest of the day exploring everything the museum has to offer.
