  • Teen Court is a nationally acclaimed program designed to divert less serious cases away from the more formal juvenile court. Teen Court is based on the premise that youthful offenders will more readily accept responsibility for their actions when judged and sentenced by peers. Teen Volunteers act as attorneys, clerks, and jury members in the effort to provide other young people who have gotten into trouble, a fair sentence. 
    • Please review the FLIER with upcoming dates and information for FALL 2021. Interested teens should sign up for Remind or follow the Facebook page.  They can train as they go and can get started right away!
