Syracuse City Youth Court trains high school age youth to act as judges, clerks, and bailiffs in actual criminal cases. Youth Court is a community-based intervention/prevention program designed to provide an alternative response for the juvenile justice system for traffic, status offenses, and nonviolent misdemeanors for juvenile offenders where community youth determine the appropriate sanctions for the offender. The youth court system follows the restorative model of justice which emphasizes the beliefs of repairing harm done to victims as well as providing youth with the resources to make better decisions in the future.
