The Ultimate Jury of your Peers

Bothell Youth Court

Youth courts nationwide have a promising impact on recidivism in minor offenses. The structure, focused on restorative justice and peer participation, facilitates learning, accountability, and community involvement among all the participants. Youth courts reduce the costs and administrative burdens on courts, benefiting our partners in the city government and enabling more direct and positive interactions between court officials and teens than a more traditional punitive model. Youth courts are truly the “ultimate jury of your peers.”
