Discovering Justice Educational Programs

We believe civics should be an essential component of a student’s education—as early as kindergarten. Our in-school, after school, field trips, and summer programs offer K-12 students a chance to learn about the justice system, practice the skills to navigate it, and explore pathways to engage effectively in civic life.
