Judge Sheila Calloway held our annual Youth Court swearing-in ceremonies at Cane Ridge and Antioch High Schools today. The students were excited and eagerly accepted the challenge put forth by Judge Calloway to be leaders, role models and scholars as they now represent Juvenile Court. Under the watchful eye of Youth Court Coordinator, Amanda Altizer, the new members of Youth Court are now equipped to assume their duties.
Our Youth Courts operate in collaboration with Juvenile Court, Tennessee Youth Courts, Inc, and the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. We currently have seven Youth Courts in Davidson County, Tennessee. Youth are trained in court structure, etiquette, case preparation, witness questioning, and fair case outcome determination by members of their community, including the Juvenile Court Judge, Youth Court Team, attorneys, law students, and teachers.
