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.

The Teen Court’s mission is to reduce juvenile crime by expanding the quality of youth and juvenile justice through positive peer influence and to strive to achieve results that exceed the expectations of our community.
