Discovering Justice’s mission is to prepare young people to value the justice system, realize the power of their own voices, and embrace civic responsibility by connecting classrooms and courtrooms.
Our innovative in-school curriculum, afterschool programs, and courthouse field trips teach elementary and middle school students about the justice system, the role of law in a democracy, and the fundamental importance of good citizenship.
Hundreds of volunteers — lawyers, judges, docents, and other community members — helped bring our programs to life for 24,058 people last year, including more than 20,000 elementary and middle school students from Boston, Cambridge, Lawrence, Lowell, New Bedford, Springfield, and Watertown.
