The Center for Youth Development through Law provides transformative programs to youth from under-resourced East Bay communities, in cooperation with UC Berkeley School of Law.

By investing in our students' energy, talents, and passion for making a difference, we prepare them for higher education, fulfilling careers, community engagement and leadership.

See our 2017 Annual Report and
 2019 Summer Program Yearbook

Our Programs
  • Summer Legal Fellowship Program: A full-time, two-month program including paid internships, classes on the UC Berkeley School of Law campus, law and social justice curriculum, social and emotional learning, and college and career development.

  • Mentoring: Participants receive guidance in their college and career pursuits, and in turn have the opportunity to mentor younger students.

  • Mock Trial Program: Diverse legal professionals provide intensive coaching and mentoring in high schools throughout West Contra Costa County, preparing students for an annual county-wide competition and fostering their academic skills, aspirations and self-confidence.

More than 92% of our participants attend higher education!
