Review for North Star Youth Court, Fairbanks, AK, USA
With my family being involved in the justice system, my mother thought it would be a great idea for me to try Youth Court... and that is how I got here three years ago. Starting out as an attorney fresh out of the bar class, I was scared! But luckily, the class I had just taken prepared me for everything, just like the senior attorneys helped. Once I became more involved, I saw just how many activities Youth Court participated in in the community, and how much influence we have on teenagers. I specifically saw this when I became a judge, and being in charge of deciding these mis- guided teens' futures. Youth Court, specifically North Star Youth Court, is a unique opportunity in which everyone involved can benefit. It is a fantastic option for teens who made a one time mistake, and to be helped by their peers. For those of us on this side of the law, North Star Youth Court is not only a place where we can delve into the practice of law, and help the community, while nurturing out peers, but it also gives us a great small community in which we can be serious, or laugh. All in all, North Star Youth Court is a fabulous opportunity, and a dynamic influence on all people who are involved.
