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, Persuation, 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.  

 

The Academy of Law and Leadership

In our spirit of challenge, we seek high school mock trial students who want to be  “The Best of the Best” for our annual summer Providence Academy. Students spend six (6) exciting days on the beautiful University of Denver campus being mentored by law students as they prepare a case for trial.

The Providence Cup

The Providence Cup is the nation's premier National High School Mock Trial Tournament recognizing students and teams that excel in mock trial.  The Cup is held each fall in Denver, Colorado. Students have six weeks to prepare an actual historical significant case for trial.  Past cases were based on the sinking of the TITANIC, the kidnapping of the LINDBERGH baby, the murder of EMMITT TILL,  the assassination of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the VALDEZ oil spill, D.B. COOPER, and JON BENET RAMSEY.
