Chester Youth Court Volunteers
Chester Youth Court Volunteers (CYCV) is an innovative, restorative justice program that trains students in law and civics, leadership skills, and youth court procedure. CYCV members conduct hearings for their peers who have committed disciplinary offenses, working together to create a constructive sentence that will help their peers. CYCV is a positive disciplinary alternative to suspension that empowers Chester students to engage in civic service while gaining important leadership skills. The role of Swarthmore students on-site is to provide guidance and support during youth court trainings and hearings, as well as provide leadership training and opportunities for academic achievement and access to higher education.
