Cattaraugus County

CATTARAUGUS COUNTY YOUTH COURT

Youth Courts train local teenagers to serve as jurors, judges and attorneys, handling real-life cases involving their peers. The programs use positive peer pressure to ensure that young people who have committed minor offenses pay back the community and receive the help they need to avoid further involvement in the criminal justice system. They encourage young people to take responsibility for their actions and to acknowledge how their behavior affects the quality of life in the community. For more information about the Cattaraugus County Youth Court contact the person below.
