BETHLEHEM YOUTH COURT
Utilizing a youth based restorative justice program in our community.
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.
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
YOUTH COURT HEARINGS
Reinforcing our Commitment
Hearings are confidential and are overseen by the Director and an Attorney Mentor.
Helping The Community
Community service is a key element in holding youth accountable for their actions and helps repair harm caused by low-level crimes and offenses.
Volunteers of Bethlehem Youth Court are engaged in a process traditionally only held by adults. They learn valuable life lesson through their involvement.
