Youth Court is a voluntary alternative to traditional school and community sanctions for crimes and offenses. The Youth Court program serves the community first. Communities are safer when offenders, either adult or juvenile, are held accountable for their actions. Youth Court achieves this by focusing on our most valuable, but fragile, asset, our youth.
