Teen Court is a referral process for 1st time juvenile offenders to be diverted from the juvenile system and go before a court of their peers. New to the Program are youth who have a high rate of absenteeism and truancy. The Program uses volunteers from the local schools who have an interest in any type of law career or who have a desire to help other students make better decisions. Volunteers serve as Judges, Prosecuters, Defense Attorneys, Clerk, Baliff, and Jury Members. Teen Court volunteers receive service learning hours for their participation.
