Brunswick County October Teen Court announced

The next session of Brunswick County Teen Court will be October 22, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., at the Brunswick County courthouse. Brunswick County Teen Court is a partnership program between Communities In Schools and the Brunswick County District Attorney’s Office, made possible through financial support provided by the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council and Brunswick County.

Students are trained to serve as attorneys, jurors, bailiffs, and clerks in real cases involving first-time juvenile offenders. Student volunteers get a hands-on educational experience that helps them better understand our system of justice. Juvenile offenders participating in this diversion program saves the county at least $2,000 per case. During school year 2018-2019, 80 defendants were served and student volunteers donated 1,000 hours of their time to participate in the program.

If you have questions about Teen Court, please contact the Teen Court Director at 910-253-4087 or teen.court@brunswickcountync.gov. Visit Brunswick County Teen Court on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information and updates.
