The Youth Court Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board consists of members whose knowledge, skills and abilities closely meet the current needs of this community collaboration. As the program continues to grow, those needs are ever changing. The board members are passionate about community engagement, youth leadership, and creating an alternative to the current ways in which youth first encounter the justice system. We meet four times a year and we strive to maintain both youth and adult members.
