WHAT IS TEEN COURT?
Teen Court provides members of the TAMS community with opportunities to volunteer at the Denton Municipal Teen Court on the first and third Tuesday of every month. Volunteers can participate as attorneys or jury members in cases with other Denton teens. As a result, Teen Court volunteers are exposed to real-world settings and provide a great service to our city at large.
This year, we are in the process of creating a new program to address some of the systemic issues that we see within the community. The program will focus on providing an educated session on both the law and personal development. Our goal is to see less juvenile incarceration, see less recidivism, and instead see more prospering teens. Join the Facebook Group to get more details and updates on when volunteering happens!

MEET THE HEADS
Hello hello! My name's Ted Kwee-Bintoro, and I'm so excited to be one of your Teen Court Commitee Heads this year. I'm from Tompkins High School in Houston, and I love politics, debate, and all things law. When I'm not doing any of that, I'll usually be playing osu! with a can of Coke by my side. Let me know if you have any questions, and I can't wait to meet you all!
Hey everyone! My name is Tejas and I can't wait to be one of your Teen Court Commitee heads next year (this year?)! I'm from Coppell and enjoy playing games and reading books. Recently, Ted has gotten me addicted to osu!. Super excited to welcome y'all to TAMS and looks forward to meeting y'all in the upcoming year!
