Volunteer with Discovering Justice

  • VOLUNTEERS

Join Our Community

Volunteers play a crucial role in our experiential learning programs, guiding students as they delve into concepts of justice and democracy, and creating opportunities for students to connect civic learning to their own lives and communities. Our field trips, after-school programs, and tours rely on a large community of volunteers, serving as mentors, facilitators, courthouse docents, and more.

AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
