Students enrolled in Middle or High School, age 13 -18, who attend school or reside in the greater Lewisville area are eligible to become volunteers in the Teen Court program.
Potential volunteers attend a court session to observe courtroom proceedings, and are then asked to sign an Information Sheet/Volunteer Agreement, which details the responsibilities and expectations of the Teen Court program. Call the Teen Court office at 972.219.3671 to get more info, request an Information Sheet/Volunteer Agreement after observing, or to find out the next court date. Paperwork will also be available at Teen Court sessions/events.
Volunteer positions available at Teen Court are: Juror, Bailiff, Prosecutor, Defense Attorney, and Master Jury Judge.
Most volunteers begin by serving as a Juror and, if desired, can move on to other duties at their own pace.
