Components of the program include:

  • Citizenship: The primary purpose of this module is to provide a short but insightful education of how our representative democracy works and the role that citizens play in this system. Emphasis is placed on the power that citizens have to affect the direction of their government by being active participants in the electoral process. Another purpose of the module is to show you why and how laws are made at the local, state, and national levels. A third purpose of the lesson is to stress the importance of laws and their purpose in maintaining the health and welfare of society as well as peace and order.
  • Law Literacy: The primary purpose is to increase participants’ knowledge base regarding common crimes that teens and young adults often find themselves charged with. A secondary purpose of the lesson is to influence decision-making such that participants will avoid purposely or inadvertently engaging in criminal activity. The final purpose of the lesson is to help participants analyze, evaluate, and correct behavior that may lead to entanglement into the criminal justice system.
  • Law Enforcement Engagement: The purpose is to educate participants on the proper ways to respond during encounters with law enforcement and how to handle police misconduct— during, and after, the time the misconduct takes place. Secondly, we will explore what Community Policing is and is not. Lastly, we will discuss the realities of working in Law Enforcement.
