CALLING ALL ADULTS - There is a volunteer opportunity available for assisting the youth of Camden County to properly run and adhere to the rules of Teen Court. During trials, volunteers will be needed to shadow the students to ensure proceedings are run properly and smoothly. Teen Court is an engaging program where teen volunteers get to learn about and have hands-on learning experience with the court system taught by Ms. Erica Banks. Youth will then plead their cases before a jury of trained peers and volunteers who can provide a constructive sentence. Click here to read more.
