Lakewood Teen Court is looking for youth volunteers between the ages of 13 to 17. This program allows teen volunteers to actively participate in the justice system, serving as defense attorneys, prosecutors, bailiffs, jury members and even judges to determine the sentence for a juvenile defendant with a real Lakewood case. The educational experience includes presentations from restorative justice professionals, school resource officers and others.
