Justice Resource Center
The Justice Resource Center (JRC) is a public/private partnership established in 1991, whose mandate is to develop, implement, replicate and evaluate law-related education projects which impact positively on the school age population in the United States. Originating in NYC, the JRC has moved to international replication.
Programs are geared to a diverse school-age population representing great disparate ethnic, racial, and socio-economic groups, enabling students to learn about the functions of government, their roles and responsibilities as citizens, and to develop a heightened respect for the law. Programs increase students' knowledge of the law, the legal process and the fundamental values they are based upon. The goal is for students to develop a heightened respect for the law and to become informed citizens.
