Hillside Youth Court


Livingston County Youth Court is a voluntary alternative to the traditional Juvenile Justice System for young people who are first-time offenders of a nonviolent crime or offense. The offender has already admitted guilt and agrees to have his case heard by a group of peers between the ages of 14 to 19. The goals are to intervene in early anti-social, delinquent, or criminal behaviors, teach new behaviors and skills, and hold the offenders accountable by offering opportunities to make amends, and to educate them on the impact of their actions on themselves, their victims, and the community. The court is made up of youth from school districts around the county who volunteer their time to be trained and take the roles of the court process.
