Twenty Springville student volunteers will assume the role of judges, bailiffs, clerks victims’ advocate and mentors as members of the Springville Youth Court. In October, the court will begin working with juvenile offenders who have committed first offenses that are Class B misdemeanors and under. The peer-to-peer court will be in session the second and fourth Thursday of the month in the Springville City Council Chambers.

The dispositions (sentences) of the court strive to incorporate accountability, encourage skill development or provide a community connection through service. This approach is known as “restorative justice.” Once the juvenile offender successfully completes the terms of the disposition, he or she is invited to return to the court and report on their experiences and, in return, maintains a clean record. For more information contact the Prevention Department at 801-491-7823.
