Join us on September 17th for Constitution Day!

The WCBA is once again sending lawyers and law students into 5th, 6th, 7th and 11th grade classrooms at Tappen, Forsythe, Clague, Scarlett, Slauson, Ann Arbor Open, Pioneer, Huron and Skyline.  This program has brought the 1st, 4th, 6th, 7th and 14th Amendments alive for thousands of students. 

Volunteering takes about an hour to review the materials, 10 minutes to contact your teacher, and anywhere from 1.5 hours to a full day to volunteer, depending on how many classrooms you want to visit.

Please sign up here today!
