Press release from the Boys and Girls Club of the Redwoods:

Humboldt County Bar Association President, Amy Mendoza-Stover, presented Sacha Marini, Director of the Boys & Girls Club of the Redwoods Teen Court program, with a $1,500 check donation at their court session on Thursday August 17th. Year after year, the Humboldt County Bar Association consistently shows tremendous support of the Teen Court program through generous donations.

Additionally, many members of the Bar Association show their support of Teen Court by volunteering their time to serve as mentor attorneys. The time and attention that these adult mentors offer is such a gift; it often inspires the teen volunteers to pursue a career in the legal field.

Teen Courts have succeeded in hundreds of communities across the country because they offer an important educational opportunity for young people to learn about how the justice system works and put civics into practice.

Teen Court is actively recruiting for new mentor attorneys! If you or someone you know is an attorney and interested, contact 707-444-0153 or hcteencourt@bgcredwoods.org.
