Organization Overview

Mission Statement :
The Texas Law Youth Court will support students who may be at risk of entering the school-to-prison pipeline by engaging them in a positive disciplinary program. To this end, the Youth Court will: 1. Establish a peer-based accountability system to address student misconduct that emphasizes principles of restorative justice, self-reflection, and responsible behavior; 2. Provide an alternative to punitive school consequences such as in-school suspension, suspension, expulsion, and ticketing, particularly for minor infractions and discretionary referrals; and 3. Promote positive student citizenship in the school community.
