Williamson County/YMCA Teen Court

Click HERE to watch a short video about Teen Court.

At Teen Court, students will be taught listening skills and etiquette to be used in the role of attorney, judge, juror, and bailiff.

Judge Edna Staudt, founder of the Williamson County YMCA Teen Court and attorney Patricia M. Cofty, JD/MBA, longtime volunteer with the Teen Court program will oversee each session. Members of law enforcement will occasionally make a presentation.

Participation in the Teen Court program gives teens an opportunity to realize their roles in the community. It also instills a sense of pride and responsibility, and through the use of positive peer role modeling, helps create a better community for all. As a Teen Court volunteer teens not only get the opportunity to practice law in the courtroom but learn valuable public speaking skills and become leaders among their peers and in their communities.
