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
My name is Jeffrey Chuong, and I’m excited to be one of your Teen Court Committee Heads this year! I’m from Bellaire High School in Houston. My hobbies include reading about the news, watching a lot of movies, and playing Teamfight Tactics. You can find me studying at Willis, drinking boba, or volunteering. I can’t wait to meet all of you guys!
What's up mad lads? My name is Raj Baweja and I'll be one of your Teen Court Committee Heads this year. I was born in Alabama, but live in Fort Worth, Texas. When I'm not wasting my life away playing League of Legends in Mac Cafe, you can find me in the common room meeting new people, "studying" at Willis, or getting smacked at Super Smash Bros in Smitty. My passions include game programming, debating, but most of all helping other people. When it looks like I'm not losing my sanity, start a conversation with me. I can't wait to meet you all soon!
