Youth Court Volunteers
Working in conjunction with Shelby County Juvenile Court, we have established a very active Youth Court Program, and are presently recruiting for new members. Youth Court is a juvenile delinquency diversion and peer-justice program. It is devoted to restorative justice principles—that is, we work to repair the damaged relationship between youthful offenders, their victims, families and our community. Youth Court is dedicated to rehabilitating first-time nonviolent offenders, holding young people accountable for their behavior, and educating youth about citizenship, the legal system, and constructive conflict resolution.
The goal of Youth Court is to use positive peer pressure to ensure that young people who have committed non-violent first time minor offenses will repair the damage they caused to their victims and to our community and receive the help they need to avoid further confrontation with the justice system. Presently the program has over a 95% success rate statewide.
As Youth Court volunteers, you will prosecute, defend and serve as bailiffs and jurors in sentencing hearing of juvenile offenders. An adult judge volunteer will supervise the hearings.
Youth Court will not impose custodial (jail) sentences or fines. Sentences will focus on restorative and rehabilitative measures, including: Written or oral apologies, restitution (paying the victim the value of the damage caused to the victim), essays, counseling, drug and alcohol assessments, addiction treatment, curfew, and community service. You can contact me if you are interested in joining the volunteers.
We have also started a Mock Team that will be in competition with our teams from area high schools in the coming school year. We are presently meeting in room B-4 on Wednesday. You can contact me if you are interested in joining the club.
