ABOUT BYC

As a restorative justice based, non-profit diversion program, Bethlehem Youth Court’s mission is to serve justice involved youth by providing them a second chance at a clean record through participation in peer-led sentencing hearings and to promote positive civic engagement for young volunteers. We have successfully carried out this mission for 25 years. This unique approach within the justice system focuses on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with victims and the community at large through the completion of community service and other positive sanctions.
