As a Fellow, there are many opportunities to volunteer with Ohio organizations that promote the pursuit of justice and the public understanding of the rule of law. Here are a few of our most popular volunteer activities:
- Speak with middle school youth about the legal ramifications of sexting and cyber bullying through our B4USend program;
- Help young adults turning 18 understand how the laws change once they become a legal adult using our FWD@18 program;
- Share with a senior group the importance of advance directives through Conversations that Light the Way;
- Serve as a judge with the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education’s moot court, mock trial or We the People competitions;
- Mentor/host a high school student in the Law & Leadership Institute’s summer program;
- Organize a “Suits for Success” clothing drive benefitting foster youth as they age out of the foster care system and enter the job market;
- Share Henry’s journey through the juvenile court system with our o.p.e.n. Court videos – designed to help youth with developmental disabilities learn about courtroom behavior and their rights;
- Co-teach/present Constitution Classroom with your local middle school.
- Promote women in the profession by presenting an activity on your profession (a courtroom re-enactment, or case evaluation) to Big Brothers, Big Sisters campers at Camp Oty'Okwa in Butler, OH.
