The Teen Court is an early intervention community resource for first time juvenile offenders. Teens volunteer to participate in all aspects of the court program, from defending fellow teens to serving on the jury. This concept has help to lower the repeat offenders from a rate of 42% in the traditional court system, to closer to 7% via teen court. The teens learn responsibility and authority through the challenges that this program presents.
The teens volunteers enjoyed cheering the Jaguars to the 13-7 victory.
