LYRIC couldn't succeed without volunteers! We are in classrooms nearly every week during the school year. LYRIC volunteers must understand how to teach principles of the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments, and also be able to facilitate discussion and questions from students. It is very rewarding to share such critical knowledge with those who can benefit most from learning their rights at a young age. If you are interested in volunteering, fill out this volunteer information sheet. LYRIC's next training CLE is scheduled for September 15, 2017.
Kids love LYRIC, and so do teachers! LYRIC is able to adapt is curriculum to either a 55-minute class period or a longer more discussion-based presentation. LYRIC's curriculum easily ties in with civics and government classes, as well as Spanish, history, and any course that teaches critical thinking skills. At the end of each presentation, students are given a wallet sized card outlining LYRIC's key principles.

As police encounters have been more widely reported, communities have expressed more desire to learn about how their youth can safely exercise their Constitutional rights. LYRIC is committed to teaching youth their rights to empower them to safely use their rights. We partner with various organizations to ensure that LYRIC's important curriculum reaches as many as possible. If you are interested in scheduling a presentation, click the button below.
