What could be better than the goal of this organization, as described by their name? The Youth Violence Prevention Council sponsors Peer Court, providing an option for youth offenders to be tried outside the juvenile justice system, giving other teens an opportunity to observe and participate in court proceedings, and understand the consequences of poor choices. Local judges and lawyers volunteer to preside over and counsel the peer prosecutors and defenders, and if the dispositions and sentences are not fulfilled by the offenders, they may be remanded to juvenile court. This is a wonderful program, that can have life-changing results for any who participate in it.
