1How Does Teen Court Work?

Students from area middle and high schools volunteer to participate in Teen Court. The responsibilities of prosecutor, defense attorney, and clerk are those of the teen volunteers. The judge is usually a local judge or practicing attorney. The jury is comprised of Teen Court volunteers and former Teen Court offenders.

Teen Court offenders must admit guilt before being accepted into the program. The trial takes place to determine an appropriate sentence. Examples of sentencing options include community service, restitution, letters of apology, essays, substance abuse education or counseling, peer group counseling, and Teen Court jury duty.

2Who can participate in Teen Court?

Youth in St Johns County age 10-18 are eligible to participate.

3Do you have to be in trouble to participate?

No. Any youth looking to volunteer in the community and get community service hours age 10-18 is welcome.
