Brunswick County Teen Court searching for student volunteers


SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) – If you’re a high school student in Brunswick County, you can get a hands-on experience with the judicial system.

Brunswick County Teen Court is holding student volunteer trainings on Tuesday, September 20 and Thursday, September 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Brunswick County Courthouse. Teen Court is in need of students in grades 9-12 to volunteer for court sessions.  Students are trained to serve as attorneys, jurors, bailiffs, and clerks in real cases involving first-time juvenile offenders.

Volunteers receive a hands-on educational experience which helps to better understand our system of justice. The juvenile offenders participating in this diversion program saves the county approximately $2,000 or more per case.

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.

 The next session of Teen Court is Tuesday, September 27.

If you have questions about Teen Court, would like to be a volunteer, or would like to reserve a seat for the next session, contact the Teen Court Director at 910-253-4087 or
