On October 1, 2013, the Youth Court of the District of Columbia was forced to shut its doors because of the non-renewal of the primary grant from the District of Columbia Justice Grants Administration. As we search for other avenues of financial support, we are asking that you take a moment and sign our petition. It will be forwarded to Mayor Vincent C. Gray.
Youth Court is more than a diversion program. It is a safe haven for young people. Youth Court is a place of non-judgement where young people learn to resolve their issues through positive peer support and services.
Youth Court needs your help. Annually, hundreds of youth earn a second chance at making a better future for themselves because of programs like Youth Court of the District of Columbia.
Will you please support us by signing our petition?
