I am interested in serving as:

In order to be a Judge, Attorney, Bailiff or Court Clerk you will need to be trained. We suggest all participants start out as a Juror and then sign up for training.

If you are selected to participate in a trial, you must attend that trial or you will be put on a 2 month suspension. The defendants are expecting a fair court trial and your absence is not being fair to the defendant. If for some reason you are not able to make a trial, you must call 273-4141 and let the Youth Court Coordinator know as soon as possible. Appropriate attire is a must.


CONFIDENTIALITY POLICY

As a volunteer, your acceptance into the Topeka Youth Project's Topeka/Shawnee County Youth Court is determined by your adherence to the standards of confidentiality stated below. Therefore, you must understand and agree to the following conditions.

1. When you begin your participation in the youth court, you may have access to various case files and other pertinent records. These may never be copied or in any way removed from the office except as needed for hearings.

2. As a volunteer, you are not to discuss cases with anyone outside the youth court system. You are not to divulge any information which comes to your knowledge in the course of a youth court hearing.

I have read the above and hereby acknowledge that I understand that in all matters relating to your confidentiality is paramount, and breaking confidentiality is unacceptable and I will not be able to participate in future trials.
