The Alabama Center for Law and Civic Education

A nonprofit organization

20 Donors

The ACLCE has worked diligently for over 20 years to accomplish our mission of teaching civic knowledge, skills, and responsibilities.   Through our many programs for upper elementary, middle, and high school students such as We the People:  The Citizen and the Constitution, Play by the Rules:  Alabama  Laws for Youth, and Teen Court peer sentencing court we have been very successful in reaching our goal of preparing youth to become active, engaged and informed citizens. 

During our 20-year history, we have provided more than $8.25 million in educational materials free of charge to more than 754,000 students and teachers, trained more than 5,775 educators, law enforcement officers, lawyers, and community leaders in effective law and civic education pedagogy and curriculum, and involved more than 4,330 volunteers in our programs.

Due to the slow economy, we have lost many of our funding sources including federal and state funding for both We the People and Play by the Rules.  We are working persistently to secure funding to continue our programs that have impacted close to one million students, teachers, school resource officers, court personnel, and community leaders. 

We hope you will make a contribution to support our worthy cause.  Any amount, even $10.00, will help ensure that we can continue to conduct We the People hearings, provide textbooks to schools that otherwise cannot afford to purchase them, provide quality teacher professional development,  serve both teen volunteers and juvenile offenders through Teen Court, and work with youth, teachers, and school resource officers throughout the state.
