Catering to youth ages 13 to 17, from around the greater Washington, DC area, we work  with students to instill courage, communication, and civic engagement.

By engaging their peers through youth court programs, youth gain a better view of the juvenile justice system, the world as well as the chance to learn new skills and build their confidence.

From group leadership to public speaking and accountability, there is no better way for youth to gain leadership skills than through one of our programs.

We engage hundreds of youth, volunteers, and affluent members of the community. We are fully committed to building a better tomorrow.

"We owe young people nothing less than a complete transformation in how we respond when they step outside the law." - E
