Teen Court Volunteer Application Eligibility and Service Requirements

Teens aged 12-17 are eligible to submit a Mecklenburg County Teen Court Volunteer Application.  Following teen jury training we ask all teens to serve, at a minimum, six Teen Court nights during the June 1 – May 31 Teen Court year.

Mecklenburg County Teen Court

The Teen Court Program provides an alternative justice system for teens. It is designed to provide juveniles with no previous convictions a second chance when they admit their guilt, agree to be tried by a jury of their peers, and take responsibility for their actions. Successful program completion allows the offender to avoid a permanent criminal record. Teens are trained by our member volunteers to be attorneys and jurors. Teens practice what they’ve learned in an actual courtroom setting.
