Creating, Implementing, and Evaluating Teen Court in Robeson County: How to Foster Community Partnerships to Develop Restorative Justice Programming for Rural Youth.

Description: For the past four years, the North Carolina Academic Center for Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (NC-ACE) has collaborated with a diverse array of community partners to launch an evidenced-based model for teen court programming in Robeson County, NC. In this presentation, we will discuss how the teen court program was developed from past juvenile justice research, how community collaborations sustain the implementation of the Robeson County Teen Court, and the effectiveness of this restorative justice program. We will hear from a panel of stakeholders, including teen court volunteers, staff, judges, and researchers.
