Each session will be conducted by two volunteer Assistant State’s Attorneys. The discussion of each Shared Core Value will begin with a skit or role playing exercise demonstrating the importance of the value in particular situations that young people are likely to face in everyday life. The program will include a tour of the Winnebago County Jail and a visit with the Chief Judge of the 17th Circuit Court. Participants will also “shadow” an assistant state’s attorney as part of the Communications presentation.
