Teen Court


The Alachua County Sheriff's Office Teen Court Program is a social-learning based crime prevention and juvenile alternative services organization in Alachua County. Teen Court affords both volunteers and participants between the ages of 10 and 17 the opportunity to learn the value of personal integrity and responsibility to the community. County and circuit judges, local attorneys, and prominent community leaders volunteer their time to serve as a judge while the remainder of the courtroom roles are played by youth who have been trained to serve as jurors, clerks, bailiffs and/or attorneys.

Once at-risk youth participants complete the Teen Court program, they are given a second chance at a conviction-free criminal record. The Teen Court program offers both participants and volunteers the opportunity to participate in individual and group counseling services, educational classes, field trips, and a hands-on introduction to the American Legal System.
