Ketchikan Youth Court

I've been a long time admirer of the Youth Court and want to congratulate the group on their tenth anniversary. Besides giving Ketchikan young people a glimpse of a potential career direction, Youth Court also serves to strip away the common impression of the Courts as places of punishment and instead focuses on their vital role in our society. Gaining an understanding of the Justice System at such a young age is in my opinion an invaluable gift. Well done.
