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.
Due to the Covid-19 shutdown, we are not holding summer Teen Court hearings or teen volunteer trainings. An update will be provided in August regarding the return to limited in-person Teen Court hearings and volunteer opportunities.
