Teen Court Program Benefits to the Community

Evidence from Durham and other cities has shown that most young people stay out of trouble following a Teen Court hearing. The program saves the community and the court system a significant amount of money.  More important, youth who participate in Teen Court learn new skills and responsibility to the community and they can develop into community leaders.  Each year non-profits and county agencies receive the benefit of several thousand hours of community service, performed by Teen Court youth.
