"Youth Court programs strive to nurture in youth a respect for the rule of law, help develop positive citizenship attitudes, encourage civic engagement, and promote educational success through a diversity of service learning opportunities, strategies and activities".
-National Association of Youth Courts​















​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"Youth Courts are structured to provide positive alternative sanctions for first-time offenders by providing a peer-driven sentencing mechanism that allows young people to take responsibility, to be held accountable, and to make restitution".

"Youth Court is, without a doubt, one of the most positive programs I have ever had the pleasure to be apart of." - Myles Larkin, Youth Court Attorney
