The following is compiled from a Boys & Girls Club of the Redwoods news release:
On Thursday, Oct. 25 from 4:15 to 6:15 p.m., the Boys & Girls Club of the Redwoods will be hosting a Teen Court Jury Duty at the Teen Center, 939 Harris St., on the corner of K & Harris in Eureka. The program is free and encourages students to better understand the justice system while hearing their peer’s real life cases.
Teens, grades 8-12, are welcome to volunteer and serve in this real court “administered by teens for teens,” where the students choose the cases. Volunteers can serve as jurors, attorneys and other positions. Additionally, students can earn community service hours while learning valuable skills and giving their peers a second chance.
For more information and to RSVP, call 707-444-0153 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
