There is evidence that parent/child bonding, especially in the very early stages of life, is extremely influential on how a child views themselves, other people, and the world for the rest of their life. Our Infants in the Workplace Program acknowledges that when infants are able to stay with their parents for a greater period of time it benefits both the family and our office.

- Mentorship Programs
- For Attorneys: The Attorney Supervisor Mentorship Program supports attorneys newly promoted or hired into a mid-level manager position, such as Team Leader or Section Chief. This informal program aims to provide new attorney supervisors with the tools and resources to succeed in their new roles, and the pair determines together the scope of their relationship.

- The AGO supports and promotes tuition reimbursement for education. Tuition reimbursement may be available for a course that provides or enhances essential job skills and knowledge related to the employee's work assignment. It may also be available for a course that furthers an employee's career development within the office.
