Fundraising Volunteers

The Justice Education Society is launching a major, province-wide fundraising campaign to “Sponsor Kids to Learn About the Law.”

Government funding to the Society’s Justice System Education Program is now gone. Every year, the program introduces thousands of students to the courts. Program activities include court orientations, court watching, sessions with judges and other justice system personnel and performing mock trials. This program is now at risk and we are counting on donations to sustain it.

The Society is hoping to raise $100,000 to introduce 20,000 youth to BC courts throughout the province. We are seeking  sponsorship from law firms, individual lawyers, judges, businesses and the general public.

We are also seeking individuals who are interested to volunteer and help support this fundraising campaign.
