High School Students Can Sign Up for Youth Court Training
The Oswego City-County Youth Bureau is sponsoring another training class for new members to the Oswego City and County Youth Court program. All area high school students in grades nine to 11 are eligible to participate.
Youth Court is a Family Court diversion program aimed at reducing juvenile delinquency in Oswego County. Students are trained to become judges, defense attorneys, prosecuting attorneys and court clerks. Young people who have been charged with a violation or misdemeanor are referred by local law enforcement officers to court. Youth Court members conduct hearings and decide on the outcome and punishment for each case.
Training will be held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, April 12 through April 16, at the McCrobie Building on Lake Street in the City of Oswego.
Applications may be obtained from high school guidance counselors or by calling the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau at 349-3451 or 1-800-596-3200, ext 3451. The deadline to register is March 31.
