Youth volunteers needed for Teen Court and Youth Advisory Commission

Are you a middle or high school student? Are you interested in volunteering? Would you like to represent other teenagers in our community, or learn more about the judicial system?

If so, wow! Have we got a couple of opportunities for you!

The City of Bryan’s Youth Advisory Commission and Teen Court are both currently looking for students like you who want to make a difference in our community. Through either of these programs, you’ll get hand-on experience tackling real-life problems and you’ll make some new friends.

Teen Court

  • Term runs during school year
  • Can be from any school district
  • Grades 9 – 12

Maybe you’re thinking of becoming a lawyer. Maybe you need some community service hours. Whatever your motivation, don’t be fooled. This isn’t a mock trial. This is a real court proceeding where student volunteers serve as attorneys and jurors.

Teen Court defendants are first time class C misdemeanor offenders, generally aged 11-17, who voluntarily agree to participate in the program. Teen Court cases are referred by the City of Bryan Municipal Court.

The upcoming Teen Court term runs concurrent with the 2023-24 school year. Teen Court applications are open to any grade 9 – 12 student in the area, so you don’t have to live or go to school in Bryan.

To apply for Teen Court, or for more information, email Jose Castro with the City of Bryan Municipal Court.

Deadline for applications to be received is Friday, Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.
