The Youth Court is always looking for youth volunteers for Youth Court on Saturdays. We always welcome adults to volunteer in our offices Monday through Thursday.  Currently, we are not accepting any volunteer applications.

* Youth will be credited for community service hours while serving as Youth Court volunteers. They will also be eligible for other Youth Court incentives and programs.
** We ask that all adult volunteers be prepared to commit to a minimum of six months of volunteer work with the Youth Court so that meaningful relationships can be developed with our youth.
