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, facilitators, courthouse docents, and more.
Mentor middle school students as they delve deeper into our nation’s judicial system through our Mock Trial and Mock Appeal Programs. Work with students on a weekly basis throughout a fall and/or spring semester.
Participate in a public courthouse panel event facilitated by our staff at Discovering Justice. Give a short presentation on your area of expertise, answer questions about your work, and help students explore contemporary legal issues and themes of justice.
