2017 Law & Leadership Summer Program

Become an advocate for yourself and others - learn about the legal system, your rights, and how teens can improve our community for the better.  Learn how to argue, negotiate, and build the skills to make the change you want to see in the world.  We'll go on field trips to meet movers and shakers in Anchorage's legal and law enforcement community and even get outdoors for some experiential learning.
