The Providence Foundation

Welcome to the Providence Foundation! We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-deductible, charitable organization dedicated to helping high school students develop their LIFE SKILLS:  Critical Thinking & Analysis, Persuasion, Professional Writing, Leadership, and Community Involvement using a mock trial format.  Think about how important it is to learn these LIFE SKILLS as early as possible.  We utilize fun and challenging activities to achieve these goals, with much of our success being accomplished through the forum of mock trial, a keystone for developing critical thinking.
