We the People
Youth Democratic Governance
"We the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect union..." are the first words of the preamble to the U.S. Constitution. We the People is an enrichment program that aims to spark a sense of civic engagement in the younger generation. The youth population will learn more about the Constitution and laws and policies in their state. We hope to the ignite the fire of future lawyers, policymakers, policy analysts, and judges.
We the People is a 12 weeks program (during the school year and 6 weeks in the summer) that is only offered on Saturdays from 11am-2pm. To participate children must be between 10 yrs to 13 yrs old for the Middle School Session; 14 yrs to 18 yrs old for the High School Session; or be in a juvenile rehabilitation program. Each participant must also be enrolled in school.
