Alumni & Volunteers

Each year, 1100 middle and high school students around Washington participate in Mock Trial and Youth Legislature programs through their local school or community organization.

Legal professionals, elected officials, teachers, and community members are needed to mentor students and facilitate local groups. Local volunteers are also needed to support regional Mock Trial competitions and Youth Legislature events around the state.

To find a local group or regional event in your area, contact Amber Wetzel and prepare to be inspired!
