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 court room setting.
Teen Court hearings will resume September 1, blending socially distanced in-person hearings and virtual Zoom juries. Teen volunteers who are already trained with Teen Court will receive email providing a Sign Up Genius link to register to serve.
