BALTIMORE — The Baltimore City State's Attorney office launched the 2019 Junior State's Attorney program for the fifth summer at the War Memorial Plaza on Monday.
The Junior SA program is a six-week program that introduces Baltimore City Public School students to the positive aspects of the criminal justice system. In the program, participants meet judges, prosecutors, police, sheriff deputies, forensic experts, elected officials and more.
At the end of the program, students participate in a mock trial to showcase the skills they learned.
Participants are also paid employees under the YouthWorks program.
“I am so excited to launch this program for a fifth successful year,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “I am amazed and encouraged by these young people’s enthusiasm and talent every summer. We must stay committed to provide opportunities such as the Jr. SA program to support Baltimore’s youth and enrich their lives so that they can realize promising futures.”
