Teen Court-Community Service

A number of community service work-sites are approved and available for selection through the teen court coordinator. There are some agencies who offer after-school and weekend opportunities for volunteer work, but these are limited. Teen Court is continually looking for good work-sites, especially for the younger offenders, age 12-15.


Volunteers review the cases that will be heard

Some Worksites:
American Red Cross
Brazos Center
Brazos Food Bank
BVCASA
Lincoln Recreation Center
College Station Parks Department

Salvation Army
Your church or other affiliation may be willing to allow you to do community service work, supervised by a non-family member.

Community Service Instructions to Defendants
  1. Set up a regular schedule with the agency and BE RESPONSIBLE for following through with your service agreement. Defendants are required to contact the agency within 7 days of their teen court hearing date. DO NOT simply "show up"; always communicate ahead of time.

  2. Take the Teen Court paper work to the first meeting with the agency; they MUST have it before you begin working, AND submit the original documents to Teen Court upon completion.

  3. BE ON TIME!!

  4. The assignment is individual; friends are not allowed to accompany you to the work-site.

  5. Absences are excused in case of illness or emergency; CALL the agency as soon as possible so the staff will not continue to expect you. The work experience will be much more valuable if the agency can depend on you.

  6. Be courteous and dependable; without this work-site, your case could not be dismissed. A job well done may create an important contact for a future recommendation when you seek employment or admission to school.
