Volunteer with Discovering Justice


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, courthouse tour guides, guest speakers, and more.

Email info@discoveringjustice.org for more information on how to get involved.


Legal Mentors
