Southampton Town’s Youth Court is a great way to earn community service credits and build your college resume! High school students from local schools work together to hold real trials for juvenile offenders, where all the facts of the case are heard and the jury decides on a disposition, or “sentence”, for the offender to repair the harm that they have caused to the victims. Cases range from trespassing, driving without a license, underage drinking to harassment, possession, and theft - among others. Students in grades 9 - 12 living or attending school in the Town of Southampton can participate. Those who are interested in becoming an attorney, improving public speaking skills, learning about the justice system, building their college/job resume or just enjoy community service are invited to join.
General youth court meetings are held from 6:00pm – 7:30pm at the Southampton Town Justice Court, 32 Jackson Ave – Transportation may be available upon request. New member training will be held on Monday, October 17th! For more information or to register, please call (631) 702-2425 or visit www.southamptontownny.gov/YBpayment.
