Youth Court Materials

The National Youth Court Center, the American Bar Association, the National Crime Prevention Council and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention all provide excellent materials to support Youth Courts. Some of the standard materials used include national guidelines for the management of Youth Courts, an implementation guide and a variety of training materials including videos, scripts, activities and role-plays.  Additionally, the South Carolina Bar Law Related Education (LRE) Division and the South Carolina Department of Education Office of Safe Schools and Youth Services (OSSYS) have full time staff available to assist communities and/or schools with the implementation, training and ongoing support of local Youth Courts.
