    Upcoming Dates


    11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    4th-grade students from  Mather Elementary School are coming to the Moakley Courthouse to participate in a  mock immigration hearing based on the book When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest. I am looking for 4 volunteers to help facilitate this field trip. 

    Your Role As A Volunteer:  As a volunteer, your responsibility would be working with student lawyers to help them craft the opening statements, witness questions, and closing arguments that they will deliver during the trial. The time commitment for volunteering is only an hour. We offer optional 45-minute monthly volunteer training at the Moakley Courthouse.  Volunteer scripts are provided and Discovering Justice staff is always available to answer any questions or provide assistance. Discovering Justice staff facilitate and are present at every field trip.  

    Please find a volunteer guide here and tips for volunteers here

    Interested new volunteers are welcome to observe this field trip! For more information please reach out to Johnny Sadoff  at 617-748-9639 or
