South Coast Youth Courts
"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."
​-www.youthcourt.net



















​​​
"By giving respondents the opportunity to undergo a trial and allowing them to repair the harm they have caused by giving back to the community, Youth Court has helped many young people turn their lives around and become productive members of society." - Justin Braga
