Oswego Youth Court Membership Application
If you know of a high school student who would like to be a member of the Oswego City-County Youth Court program please pass along a copy of this application. Any completed applications that we receive will be kept on file until a future training date is set. The student will then be notified of the upcoming training sessions.
Youth Court membership is open to all students in grades 9-11. Members are trained to become Judges, Defense Attorney’s, Prosecuting Attorney’s and Court Clerks. Youth Court hears real cases of young offenders who are referred by local law enforcement for minor offenses. Members conduct hearings related to these cases and decide on real punishments for these offenders.
If you or any youth have questions regarding the Youth Court program, please feel free to contact us at 349-3451.
