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.

The program received the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission Grant for 2016-2017.
