Teen Court in Session

About

Teen Court is a diversion program for youth ages 11-17 who have admitted guilt to misdemeanor crimes. The program allows for defendants to be heard by a jury of their peers who then determine a constructive sentence for them (this usually consists of community service and coming back to serve as a juror among other sanctions).

Teen Court has several volunteer opportunities for middle and high school students (ages 13-18) who are interested in the legal system or simply having an impact on their community. Volunteers serve in key roles as bailiff, clerk, attorney, or juror.
