Fall 2012 Youth Court Conference
|The ice breaker|
Adult coordinators shared common challenges and strengths, and ways to address issues that are common to all youth courts. Issaquah had a team to consider how to implement a youth court in their school.
During lunch, President Terri Cooper ran the annual meeting of the Association's meeting and volunteer attorney Charley Bates conducted the student elections. Harmeen Kaur from Whatcom County Youth Court was elected Student President and Elijah Hayes of the Seattle Youth Traffic Court was elected Student Vice President. Each serves for a one-year term, with the VP then moving into the Student President's position.
The event ended with a trip to the Great Wheel, Seattle's newest Ferris wheel located down on the waterfront.
