NEW PROGRAM: VIRTUAL YOUTH COURT SUPPORT
Due to the ongoing global pandemic and despite many businesses being open, some remain closed and are operating virtually—this is the case for youth who are scheduled to appear before the Court.
Youth Court now takes place over Zoom, either by phone or by video chat—every second Monday. Having worked with youth during the COVID-19 shutdown, DYSS recognized the gap between our youth and access to or understanding of technology. The program to open to ALL youth who must appear before the Court a space with a support person, a phone or computer to connect with the Court over Zoom. The support person is also able to help with date tracking and reminders.
What we offer:
→A safe space to appear in virtual youth court
