Why is Teen Court a better alternative to the traditional juvenile justice system?
Teen Court is based on the principles of restorative justice and utilizes the power of positive peer pressure. This approach holds juveniles accountable for their actions and equips them to make better decisions in the future. Moreover, Teen Court helps defendant's maintain a clean record, because their case is dismissed upon successful completion of the program. This gives kids who made a mistake a second chance and the opportunity to move forward. Castle Rock Teen Court's success is evidenced by the dozens of previous Teen Court defendants who have returned to volunteer with the program.
