MENTORSHIP APPLICATION


CAPDS is currently accepting applications for our felony and misdemeanor mentorship programs.



The mentorship program begins with a week long intensive training between February 25, 2019 - March 1, 2019.  Our misdemeanor program lasts for six months and our felony mentorship program lasts one year.  Our misdemeanor program will assist those who do not meet the minimum qualifications for our panel and our felony mentorship program will assist those who do not meet the minimum qualification for our felony panel.  A commitment to CAPDS and indigent defense is expected by all mentees.  


CAPDS will not be expanding its Felony A mentoring program this year.   Space may be available in the current program in 2020.
