ABOUT SALEM TEEN COURT

Salem Teen Court is a diversion program for first-time, non-violent, youth offenders between the ages of 12 and 17. The program has a restorative justice lens with the goals of reducing the number of repeat offenders, providing youth the opportunity to learn and grow from their mistakes, and to engage youth in Boys & Girls Club programming. As a participant in the program they will have the opportunity to serve as jurors in future Salem Teen Court cases. This peer jury, guided by an attorney volunteer, decide on the sanctions required of the participant to complete the program. When a youth completes their sanctions and does not receive additional charges during the six months following their court date, they are eligible to apply to have their record formally expunged.

PRIMARY FUNCTION
