The next session of Brunswick County Teen Court will be September 26, 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 Schools.
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. Fiscal year-to-date in 2016-2017, 72 defendants have been served and student volunteers have donated 1,828 hours of their time to participate in the program.
