Teen Court

End Teenage Recidivism

Teen Court is a program sponsored by Volunteers for Youth Justice, members can receive 2-3 service hours for attendance, sessions are held once a month. Volunteers act as members of a jury or as attorneys as they hear details of a real court case and decide the sentencing of the defendant. This is great practice for anyone interested in mock trial and exposes members to law, public speaking, and internship opportunities with real lawyers.
