As the only "Research-Driven" Teen Court in the United States, Robeson County Teen Court offers young offenders an opportunity to make restitution for a non-violent offense. We accomplish this through community service, specialized classes and jury service.
Thanks to a grant received from the North Carolina Governor's Crime Commission, our center is now working with Victims of Criminal Acts! Through a Three-Tiered Model of Services , the Victim Services & Support program addresses gaps in services specifically created for victims, thus avoiding a delay in service delivery.
Our Three-Tiered Model consists of the following:
* DIRECT SERVICES
* CLIENT-CENTERED CURRICULUM
Parenting Wisely program's research shows:
* Increased knowledge & use of parenting skills;
* A decrease in children's negative behavior;
* A decrease in violence and conflict;
* Strengthening family relationships;
* Increases communication, family unity & builds respect;
Helping young men and women understand their past behaviors, build self-esteem, and have them graduate the program with the confidence and knowledge to integrate what they've learned into their daily lives, The CORe Project teaches the skills to empower today's youth to make better decisions when faced with potential situations that could lead to negative behaviors.
Columbus County Schools and Public Schools of Robeson County are working with us to implement a restorative justice school safety initiative. Funded by the NIJ, the Peer Courts at these schools aim to reduce school-based bullying, aggression, and violence, while enhancing school safety and mental health in middle and high school students.
Utilizing a restorative-based justice model to assist first-time offenders in assuming responsibility for their criminal behavior, Richmond County Teen Court holds each offender accountable for their actions by teaching them to make better decisions in the future through community service activities, specialized classes, and jury service.
