Youth Courts, also called teen courts, provide an alternative for young people who've made mistakes that take them into the Juvenile Justice System for the first time on minor offenses. Teenage court members learn about the role of law in our democracy and about their role as active citizens. Young people who are equipped with knowledge of the law and how it works within the judicial system are inclined to have a better understanding of their connection to the American system of justice. The youth feel that they are participants, not potential victims. Music by Kevin MacLeod. Filmed by Alex Monroe and Ryan Griffin. Edited by R. Alan Ingalls.
