Eureka - The Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods just received a major grant for the Teen Court. $25,000 was given by Pacific Youth Foundation to support positive youth development and leadership for the Teen Court Program.
Teen Court is a diversion program for first-time juvenile offenders who have an opportunity to be tried by a teen jury, attorneys, judge and clerk.
The program is based on youth empowerment, restorative justice and getting a second chance. For more information, contact the Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods.
