Discovering Justice’s mission is to prepare young people to value the justice system, realize the power of their own voices, and embrace civic responsibility by connecting classrooms and courtrooms. Discovering Justice is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Join Discovering Justice
We invite our educators, volunteers, donors and legal community to join Discovering Justice. Receive updates and gain access to videos and teaching materials for grades one through eight. Enrolled schools receive teacher training and materials and ongoing professional development. Together we can help young people transform their sense of themselves and the world.
Discovering Justice’s programs are changing students’ lives and school climates by teaching children to use their voices to advocate for themselves and others through learning about democratic values, history, justice, and civic responsibility. We offer programs in school, afterschool, and in courthouses. Several programs have both a school-based and courthouse-based component.
