How important are our donors? They are the lifeblood of Teen Court.
The Teen Court Foundation of St. Clair County is a 501c3 Foundation established to provide financial support for the St. Clair County Teen Court. It was created to ensure that Teen Court can continue to provide a much needed and successful resource for non-violent teen offenders. The Program was funded by the Juvenile Justice Council of the State of Illinois with pass-through federal funds from July 2014 through June 2017. As of July 2017, those federal funds were not awarded to any Teen Court in Illinois. Contributions from generous individuals, businesses and community organizations since July 2017 ensured that Teen Court has continued to serve the needs of youthful offenders.
The cost for a teen offender to enter Teen Court and successfully graduate is $375. This expense includes a referral from the State’s Attorney office, interviews with a parent and teen, appearance in Teen Court, oversight of the restorative justice remedy and successful graduation.
Make a contribution today that will have a positive impact on the life of a young offender, the teen jurors, and our community.
