We are pleased to announce that the Philadelphia school district plans to grant us a contract to conduct
youth courts for 10th graders at the Martin Luther King high school and ninth graders at Penn Treaty High School in Philadelphia. Through our years of conducting them, we have found youth courts to be a viable alternative to teaching the principles of conflict resolution and reducing violent behaviors in the school. This program is funded through a federal grant program called GearUp which is designed to reduce school dropouts and improve readiness for college.
