The Youth Court is a local Exploring Career Post helping students explore law court careers.

Training starts on January 28, 2019. After students are trained to run the court of law for juveniles, they will meet two Mondays per month for three hours each.
WHAT IS YOUTH COURT?
Youth Court is a "peer court" consisting of teenage judges, attorneys, clerks, and bailiffs who hold court for first-time juvenile offenders.

WHO MAKES UP YOUTH COURT?
The Washington County Youth Court is made up of students from Washington County schools in the 8th through 12th grades. Students may begin participation in Youth Court at any time during the year. In the fall participants attend an eight-session training course in the law, courtroom conduct, and trial procedure are taught by local attorneys, members of the District Attorney’s Office, members of the Youth Court Steering Committee, and current Youth Court participants. Students can participate as judges, prosecuting or defense attorneys, clerks, or bailiffs during each Youth Court session.
