Utah’s Annual Youth Court Conference:
July 28-31 @ the University of Utah
The Utah Youth Court Association will hold the 17th Annual Utah Youth Court Conference at the University of Utah. We are so excited to be partnering with the Salt Lake District Attorney’s office, the Salt Lake City Police Department, the Utah Transit Authority, the University of Utah, local businesses, and local law offices to provide youth court volunteers with an invaluable restorative justice education. All Salt Lake Peer Court students are invited and encouraged to attend. We are working hard to raise money (see fundraisers!) so that we can provide students with scholarships. If you would like to attend, please fill out the individual registration form (below) and turn it into the Peer Court office with payment before Tuesday, June 10th at 12:00 pm.

This spring, youth offenders will be able to complete one of their disposition requirements by building a bike, creating art, or working at a local community garden. Our partnerships with the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective, the ArtsBridge Program (The Youth ARC), and the Wasatch Community Gardens are all part of our campaign to develop disposition options that focus on positive youth development.
