1st-grade students from Phineas Bates Elementary School are coming to the courthouse to participate in a mock trial about the alleged crimes of trespassing and vandalism using the narrative of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
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.
