What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Peer Court

Peer Court – This ongoing juvenile diversion program reduces criminal activity by first-time juvenile offenders who have committed non-violent misdemeanors. A sitting judge presides, attorneys act as advisors and students are selected from the 6,500 participants serve as jurors to assess the case and assign sanctions to approximately 80 young offenders from high schools other than the Peer Court site. An interactive curriculum educates students about the juvenile justice system and helps them make responsible decisions.

Population(s) Served

Mock Trial – This program combines law-related education with tournament style competition. Using an actual settled criminal court case, over 800 students, representing 46 teams enact every role in a trial, under the guidance of attorney and teacher coaches. Students can also compete in courtroom art and journalism contests.

Population(s) Served

Constitution Day Conference – This outreach program reaches almost 2,000 students and complies with the U.S. Department of Education’s mandate that educational institutions accepting federal aid celebrate Constitution Day. Volunteer attorneys and judges visit classrooms throughout Orange County and present an interactive lesson related to the U.S. Constitution.

Population(s) Served

Law Day Conference – This one-day conference offers workshops on topical Constitutional issues, such as “Should teens be tried as adults?” or “Safety vs. Privacy – security measures on campus.” Over 500 students are challenged to debate their rights and how these rights are associated with civic responsibility.

Population(s) Served

Orange County Career Forum – This one-day conference, held in partnership with the Orange County Department of Education, links 1,100 Orange County high school students with local, prominent business professionals. Workshops range from traditional corporate and entrepreneurial business opportunities to managing credit and preparing for successful interviews.
