Youth Legislature

Through the legislative process teens in grades 8-12 develop confidence, hone skills in writing, research and public speaking, and better understand their power as citizens in a democratic society. Delegates learn about the variety of views and issues around WA as they discuss solutions and alternatives to problems facing their own communities


Mock Trial

In Mock Trial teens work with legal professionals in their community to develop an understanding of real life case law and the role of the court system in a democratic society. As part of a competitive team, high school students develop caring relationships with their peers, gain skills in oral advocacy, research and critical thinking.
