Street Law, Inc. has a wide variety of programs and curricula ideal for enriching the work of NGOs. Organizations have partnered with us to educate underserved populations—including pregnant and parenting teens, youth who are aging out of foster care, and young people in the juvenile justice system. Other NGOs have employed the Street Law curricula to educate young people and adults in democratizing countries about the fundamental principles of democracy. If you are interested in ways in which Street Law can help your organization provide high-quality education about law, democracy, and human rights, talk to us—the possibilities are endless.
