About MCCE


Even if you are not a teacher, you play an indispensable role in the preparation of the next generation of citizens. Our programs depend on the willingness of lawyers, judges, police officers, elected officials, and scholars to be successful. Volunteers are needed to work with teachers in the classroom, to coach mock trial teams, to judge competitions, and to share their expertise in training opportunities and the development of materials. You are needed and welcome.
