We recognize that all young people need support and guidance during adolescence. It is the intent of the Youth Court program to help our youth move into a successful future by helping them achieve:

  • A sense of usefulness: a realization and belief that they have something to contribute
  • A sense of belonging: being a part of a community and establishing positive relationships with caring adults
  • A sense of competence: being able to do something well; to experience personal success
  • A sense of power; having control over one’s future
