Judicial Youth Corps Program
The Judicial Youth Corps (JYC) Program is an educational spring and summer internship that teaches high school students about the Massachusetts court system and rule of law. Students are taught and mentored by judges, lawyers, clerks, probation officers and other court personnel who volunteer their time in educational sessions or as work supervisors. Students participate in a mock trial, field trips, group discussions, and much more. The JYC program, run out of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, offers two sessions in the spring and summer. Students who are accepted into the program must attend both sessions.
