Youth Motivation Program

Youth Motivation Program
On December 14, 2010, 35 students from the Options Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. attended the Youth
Motivation Program coordinated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The Youth Motivation Program is designed to expose
youth to the inner workings of the criminal justice system and discourage them from engaging in criminal behavior. The
students were given a behind the scenes tour of D.C. Superior Court. They observed Magistrate Judge Kim Knowles
conducting a preliminary hearing. Afterwards the students met and engaged in a candid discussion and Q&A session
with Associate Judge Michael Rankin. MPD Homicide Detective Mitch Credle gave a presentation, which included a
viewing of crime scene photographs. The Program concluded with a round table discussion with several Assistant
United States Attorneys who spoke with the students about making the right decisions and how those decisions will
affect their lives. If you are interested in the United States Attorney’s Youth Motivation Program, please contact
