Colorado Springs Teen Court is a unique and highly successful approach to juvenile crime. This independent non-profit program provides an alternative to the regular Municipal Court sentencing for first-time misdemeanor offenses committed by young people between 10 and 18 years of age. The purpose of Teen Court is to hold youth offenders accountable for their actions and to assist them in making better life choices through relevant sentencing options. Although Teen Court works in tandem with the Municipal Court system, it remains a locally-based c 3 nonprofit organization that relies on community support to sustain its programs. Recognizing that peer influence is one of the most powerful factors affecting youth behavior, Teen Court relies on a highly-trained corps of teen volunteers to review cases, deliver sentences, and ultimately steer juvenile defendants away from self-destructive decisions toward more productive life choices.
The North Carolina Teen Court Association was created for the purpose of serving as a link to bring all local Teen Court programs together as a unit. Our mission statement says it best; our goal is to promote, encourage, and support the development and implementation of Teen Court programs across North Carolina. We are proud to serve as a central source to unite Teen Court Programs across the state. Cynthia L. She bought new ideas and a passion for serving youth.
