What is the Youth Court?
  • The Kaysville Youth Court is a voluntary juvenile diversionary program wherein high school-age youth act as judges, jurors, clerks, bailiffs, mentors, and teachers; enabling them to develop an understanding and respect for the legal process. 
  • The Youth Court does not determine guilt, but takes youth offenders who admit their mistakes and provides them with appropriate consequences.  
  • Youth who appear before the Youth Court have been identified by law enforcement personnel, school officials, the juvenile court, or any other concerned party as having committed acts which indicate a need for intervention to prevent further development toward juvenile delinquency. 
  • The Youth Court provides this early intervention in the form of positive peer pressure that keeps the offending youth from having a juvenile record while holding the youth accountable to both their peers and the community.
