Teen Court

Overview

Teen Court is a community-based intervention / prevention program designed to provide an alternative response to the juvenile justice system for first-time, nonviolent, misdemeanor juvenile offenders, in which community youth determine appropriate sanctions for the offender.

The program holds youth offenders accountable and provides educational services to offenders and youth volunteers to promote long-term behavioral change that leads to enhanced public safety.
