Teen Court is a diversion program for youth offenders that have committed certain crimes. This service is provided by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, and it offers children throughout Alachua County an opportunity to earn an important second chance while teaching them the value of personal integrity and responsibility to their community.

Teen Court is always looking for great volunteers! We need middle school and high school volunteers every Tuesday evening to serve as jurors, attorneys or clerks during Teen Court. An information sheet is provided below that explains a bit more about Teen Court, with an attached volunteer emergency contact form.

Our Teen Court calendars are also posted with the dates Teen Court is in session. If you are interested in attending, please arrive at the Criminal Courthouse at 220 South Main Street in Gainesville any Tuesday evening at 4:30pm. We typically conclude between 6:30pm- 7pm.
