Join Teen Court Volunteers as they explain how teen court is a real justice program run by teens for teens. Juvenile’s aged 10 through 17 who have committed misdemeanor crimes appear before a jury of their peers. In Teen Court, teen volunteers perform the roles of the prosecuting and defense attorneys, bailiff, clerk and jury. The Judge is the only adult directly involved in the court proceedings.
Benefits of Volunteering: Giving back to your community by helping your peers become responsible citizens. Teen Court experience is a prestigious accomplishment to be put on college applications. Teen Court volunteers will gain knowledge of the judicial system and gain experience acting as attorney, bailiffs, or court clerks. *Opportunity to attend state level Teen Court Summit!*
