Peer Jury Program
Peer Jury Program: This Youth Development Program provides teens the opportunity to volunteer and train to become a juror. Peer Jury volunteers are comprised of a group of youth that hand out sentences to first-time youth offenders. Youth volunteer jurors will gain leadership and communication skills as well as gain community awareness while playing an important part in making their communities better.
The Peer Jury program places juvenile offenders before a panel of local teenage volunteers who determine appropriate actions that will repair the harm to the community, including community service, written papers, and letters of apology. Those youth referred to Peer Jury are first-time offenders who admit to committing non-violent crimes.
