Bothell Youth Court Needs Your Food Donations For Students
Monday Nights Through June 2017

Bothell Youth Court Logo
Please consider donating a meal for up to 20 students at The Bothell Youth Court through the coming school year for which they would like to have food available for the students. 

Students come to Youth Court as an extra activity after school and spend the evening there, often not leaving until 8pm to head for home. This is a long time for teens to go without food!  Dinners are needed for Monday nights throughout the school year from now until the end of June 2017.

In partnership with the Municipal Court of Bothell, University of Washington Bothell and the Northshore School District, the Bothell Youth Court works towards empowering local youth to adjudicate real cases of traffic violations committed by their peers. Meeting once a month, Bothell Youth Court is presided over by a youth judge, witnessed by an all-youth jury, and cases are presented by youth attorneys. The court has heard over 50 cases and continues to work towards its goal of a safer community.  Thanks for whatever help you are able to give in shining a light on this need.
