About Pima County Teen Court

A program of YWCA Southern Arizona, Pima County Teen Court is a diversion program for minors that have been arrested and have admitted guilt to a crime. These teens choose to be sentenced by a jury of their peers instead of going through the juvenile justice court system. Teen Court accepts referrals for youth ages 12-17 who were arrested for crimes approved for diversion by the court. Youth enter Teen Court by participating in a hearing where they:

  • account for the behavior that led up to their arrest,
  • receive feedback from teens in the community on how to repair the harm they caused, and
  • are sentenced by a peer jury to complete a set of constructive consequences that are designed to impart consequences for their crimes, address the harm caused, restore relationships, and increase participants’ knowledge and skills.

Restorative Justice in Action

The Pima County Teen Court program of YWCA Southern Arizona positively engages youth through restorative justice, law-related education, and positive peer influence to reduce juvenile crime. All program participants are teens, except for the judge. Using the principles of restorative justice, Teen Court assigns constructive consequences that are designed to help defendants understand why their behavior was wrong, repair the harm they caused, and make better choices in the future. Because Teen Court is a diversion program, upon successful completion, the defendant will not receive a conviction on their record.

Peer Support and Teen Volunteers

Trained teen volunteers receive invites to serve on the Peer Justice Panel for Teen Court hearings. There are TWO ways to volunteer with Pima County Teen Court.

  1. Prosecution or Defense Advocate: ​Anyone who is in high school can train to become a Prosecution or Defense Advocate. Their role in the Teen Court hearing is to review the police report and question the defendant from their assigned role (either prosecution or defense). They then work with the rest of the panel to determine a constructive consequence.
  2. Juror: Anyone between the ages of 12-18 years old can train to become a juror. They are encouraged to ask questions while serving on the Peer Justice Panel but not required. They work with the rest of the panel to determine a constructive consequence for the defendant.
Many teen volunteers go on to pursue a career in law after exploring their interests and gaining experience through Teen Court!
