Our Mission 

South Coast Youth Court is a voluntary juvenile diversion program offering juvenile respondents the opportunity to accept responsibility for their actions and to resolve criminal charges through adjudication by their peers. The South Coast Youth Court also serves to educate young people to develop understanding and respect for the justice system.

We would like to thank our community partners for all of their time and support!
