About

The Legal Socialization in Moldovan Schools Program (MLSP) aims to strengthen the rule of law, support Moldovan communities in preventing juvenile delinquency, and develop a positive relationship between juveniles and law enforcement authorities. It will do this through an integrated approach that educates youth on the law, raises awareness on community problems such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking, and develops cooperative partnerships among youth, educators, law enforcement authorities, and the larger community.

MLSP will educate youth at a critical age about the rule of law and legal issues using youth-oriented approaches that result in a greater respect for the rule of law. This contributes to a lower incidence of crime by participating youth and creates a more pervasive culture of understanding about and upholding of the rule of law.

The program builds and develops positive relationships between juveniles and law enforcement authorities. Establishing positive interactions between youth and police in the classroom and through supplemental activities such as afterschool clubs and service-oriented projects improve trust and public confidence in the police. The program reinforces partnerships among ministries and institutions working with youth on rule of law issues and develops new relationships between these bodies, youth and their families.
