Teen Court Volunteer Hours in South Dakota

Change Indicator

Why This Indicator Matters

Teen Court is a voluntary program that assists teenage offenders, ages 10-18, in assuming responsibility for their behavior through involvement in the judicial process and service in the community.  First time offenders are brought before a jury of their peers where they are sentenced to constructive service and from this, they gain an understanding of their roles in society. Additionally, the community reciprocally benefits from these youths’ involvement in their programs.
