Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 and the Twin Lakes YMCA are hosting the annual Teen Court Orientation on August 26, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Magee Dining Hall at the Twin Lakes Campus, 204 E Little Elm Trail, in Cedar Park. Teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 are invited to attend.

Students will be taught the roles of attorney, judge, juror and bailiff.

Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Angela Williams, Judge Edna Staudt, founder of the Williamson County YMCA Teen Court, and volunteer attorneys will lead the orientation.

Lunch, drinks and t-shirts will be provided by the YMCA. Dress is casual but modest. Parents are required to complete registration forms before they leave the site. Please contact Melissa East, chief court administrator for Judge Angela Williams, at 512-260-4210 for further details and registration forms.

Participation in the Teen Court program gives teens an opportunity to realize their roles in the community. It also instills a sense of pride and responsibility, and, through the use of positive peer role modeling, helps create a better community for all. As a Teen Court volunteer, teens not only get the opportunity to practice law on real criminal cases in the courtroom but learn valuable public speaking skills and become leaders among their peers and in their communities.

Further information is available on the Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 website: Teen Court | Williamson County, TX (wilcotx.gov)
