Teen Court is always looking for both teen and adult volunteers to keep this program running.

  • Meet new people
  • Learn about the judicial system
  • Support and strengthen families

Youth Volunteers

We are always on the look out for Teen Volunteers! Whether you are required to complete hours for school or just want to volunteer for a day or two, we can always use the help. We have locations in Waimea, Kona and Hilo. We take 10 y/o -17 y/o volunteers.  There are a lot of reasons you should volunteer! Here are some of the top reasons Teen Court is the best place to volunteer at:

  • Youth have the opportunity to earn high school credit/Service Learning Credit through some schools
  • You get to sit in on real life court cases, and be part of a courtroom
  • You can request training on how to be a judge, state attorney or defense attorney!
  • We hold several other workshops, community projects and activities that you can join in on. This includes Arts & Crafts, working with kids and getting prepared for life after High School.
  • Fun to do
  • Boost your college resume
  • Meet new people
  • The best for last, free pizza and soda at the end of each court case!
