Walk a Mile in Their Shoes: Youth-Centered Simulation

Celebrate Pro Bono week by attending this unique program!

Youth involved in the child welfare or juvenile justice systems must confront many different institutions which often don’t coordinate or communicate with each other. Through this experiential learning simulation, you will explore what it’s like to be a young person involved with the justice system and how community lawyering and pro bono can make a difference.
