See Civic Education In Action
Building the foundation for positive communities and schools.
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.
Students who participate in Discovering Justice develop a sense of personal responsibility and respect for others, learn that they can make a difference in their lives and their communities, and become cognizant of the value of their participation in society.
Discovering Justice places a special emphasis on underserved communities. Today, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of supporters and volunteers — judges, lawyers, teachers, business leaders, vendors, students, and parents — more than 93,000 children and adults have taken part in Discovering Justice’s interactive civic education programs. We are proud and privileged to work with these individuals to help strengthen democracy by educating and inspiring the next generation.
