About YWCA:

The mission of YWCA Southern Arizona is eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
Our vision is a world free of injustice, where all people can thrive.
We believe the success of our communities depends on upholding equity, inclusion, and opportunity as fundamental values.
YWCA provides integrated and bilingual community, leadership, and economic development programs, including workforce, family wellness, and social services that promote multi-generational solutions to end poverty and violence.
Our overall goal is creation of sustainable, effective, and efficient means to place women, families and BIPOC in Southern Arizona more firmly and equitably in control of their futures.

Position Summary

The Teen Court Program Coordinator provides administrative support and program coordination for the Pima County Teen Court Program, a peer-led juvenile court diversion program that uses the principles of restorative justice, service learning, and positive youth development to prevent juvenile crime recidivism.
Teen Court accepts referrals from Pima County Juvenile Court for youth ages 12-17 who were arrested for crimes approved for diversion by the court.
Youth enter Teen Court by participating in a hearing where they:

  • account for the behavior that led up to their arrest,
  • receive feedback from teens in the community on how to repair the harm they caused, and
  • are sentenced by a peer jury to complete a set of constructive consequences that are designed to impart consequences for their crimes, address the harm caused, restore relationships, and increase participants knowledge and skills.

The unique aspect of Teen Court is that trained youth volunteers serve as attorneys, bailiffs, clerks, and jurors.
Positive peer influence and parental involvement drive the program.
