15th Annual Youth Court Summit Cancelled

Due to the growing uncertainty surrounding the duration and impact of COVID-19, the 2020 Youth Court Summit has been cancelled. A new date for the summit has not yet been determined. Stay well and safe during this unprecedented time.

The Youth Court Summit is a project of the Judicial Council’s Collaborative Justice Courts Advisory Committee, and is the primary training event for youth courts across the state. Since 2006, the California Youth Court Summit has been co-sponsored by the California Association of Youth Courts, Inc. (CAYC) and is open to youth statewide.  The summit provides a unique opportunity for hundreds of youth court leaders, judges, youth court staff, volunteers, education and youth-focused organizations, and community service leaders to engage in a program of juvenile court diversion, truancy prevention, and civics education, while sharing best practices and providing assistance to those who would like to start a youth court.  Several of the workshops at the summit are youth-led and are designed to assist both current and prospective youth court staff on a variety of topics.
