Youth Court

Youth Court is a voluntary alternative to the formal juvenile justice system in which juvenile offenders are sentenced by their peers.  The goal of Youth Court is to reduce the number of youth entering the court system by providing early intervention to youth who are truant or commit first time minor offenses.  Youth volunteers participate in the roles of: prosecuting and defense attorneys, judges, jury members, and bailiffs.

The Youth Court program jointly offers "hands-on" experience in the legal system to youth volunteers who are interested in:

  • the Juvenile Justice System,
  • a career in law,
  • performing community service work,
  • gaining experience in debate, forensics, or drama,
  • or in positively intervening in the lives of their peers.

If you are interested in volunteering, e-mail, the Youth Court Coordinator.
