North Star Youth Court (NSYC) truly is an exceptional organization. As a former Board member, it was my honor to assist in decisions that fostered a program that empowers youth from all social strata while teaching respect for the law and positive citizenship. As the parent of a young man who volunteered with Youth Court, I was able to witness first-hand the positive impact on responsibility, public speaking abilities, and overall self-confidence this program instills. In essence, this organization quite literally helps to develop our next generation of youth leaders. It is an outstanding asset to our community!

I have been in youth court for two years now. I have served as both defense and prosecuting attorney. I feel that the people involved with youth court really take time to help those in need. I enjoy the hard work that every day people, mostly teenagers like myself, put into this organization. I have seen young people grow and have watched what others have done with their choices.

Youth court has allowed me to learn lessons from other people's experience as well as help others in a fun and productive way. I enjoy working with this program and am proud to have met such hard working and honest people.
