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.
