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.
Lead a Moakley Courthouse Tour to provide students and members of the public with the opportunity to learn about its role and history in the justice system, and its value as a vibrant public space for art, architecture and parks.
Facilitated by our staff at Discovering Justice, with support from legal and community leaders as guest speakers, students will explore an essential question through a variety of informational sources and learn essential civic skills including civil discourse and how to take informed action through engagement.
Mentor middle school students as they delve deeper into our nation’s judicial system through our Mock Trial and Mock Appellate programs. Work with students on a weekly basis throughout a Fall and/or Spring Semester.
