What is Teen Court?
Teen Court offers eligible
youth an alternative to
Juvenile Court— they receive
sanctions from their peers.
Why a Teen Court?
Teen Court offers eligible
youth an opportunity to take
responsibility for their actions. It
provides positive peer pressure with
community-based consequences.
Benefits of Teen Court?
When Juvenile offenders
successfully complete their
Teen Court sanctions, they will have
the offense removed from their
record. This is a real second chance
to prove that mistakes can be turned
into positive choices. Parents are no
longer held totally accountable. The
juvenile becomes responsible for
his/her actions. The community
is able to see youth being held
accountable for their actions.
Volunteers are given a chance to
make a difference in the lives of
young people.
