City/County Youth Court
Youth Court is a program run by our youth for our youth. Juvenile offenders between the ages of 10 and 17 who have committed a misdemeanor crime have their cases heard by a jury of their peers.
Youth Court volunteers perform the roles of prosecuting and defense attorneys, bailiff, clerk and jury. A local volunteer attorney presides as Judge and is the only adult directly involved in the Court proceedings. Juvenile offenders who successfully complete the program avoid formal prosecution.
MBKI Data Bank
The data dashboard is a tool to monitor and report on the community’s progress towards the MBKI’s goal of implementing a “coherent cradle-to-college-and-career strategy for improving the life outcomes of all young people to ensure that they can reach their full potential” without regard to race, gender, or socioeconomic status, etc.
