What is Youth Court?
Broken Arrow Youth Court is an actual court staffed by youth who serve the juvenile court system, giving first-time youth offenders an opportunity to receive a trial conducted by their peers. Broken Arrow Youth Court allows students interested in the justice system to learn, participate and contribute to the community. It is a collaborative effort among Youth Services of Tulsa, Broken Arrow Municipal Courts, and the members of the Tulsa County Bar Association. All youth court referrals are sent directly from the Broken Arrow Municipal court.

What do Youth Court volunteers learn?
They learn how the judicial system works, how to judge right vs. wrong, what the consequences are for breaking the law, and how to apply ethics and legal strategy. Youth Services of Tulsa participates in actual courtroom trials in the rotating roles of judge, prosecuting attorney, defense attorney, judges, court clerk, or court bailiff.
