Youth Justice Court — Queens Defenders

December 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 27, 2021

In Youth Justice Court, clients are tried and judged by youth trained as prosecutors, defense attorneys, and juries. An adult serves as the judge. Through this restorative justice approach, youthful offenders gain a clear understanding of the impact of their actions, take responsibility, and make amends.

The YJC volunteers become peer leaders, learn about the criminal justice system, and frequently go on to pursue careers in criminal justice and law.
