_ Granville County Teen Court has entered a new age of technology this summer! As many of you know we are already on Facebook but have most definitely slacked off on updating it for you as often as we should have. If you haven’t already taken notice we are working very hard at changing that this year. We have also entered the Twitter world and you can follow us @grancoteencourt and our website will soon be regularly updated with blogs, newsletters, surveys, and hopefully some pictures! We hope that this is only the start to new beginnings for the Granville County Teen Court program. This year we are welcoming adult case managers to help with case management. We heard a record breaking 50 cases last year! We hope and are prepared for these numbers only to continue to rise, serving the youth of Granville County with a diversion program that some would describe as being more difficult to go through than juvenile court. If you are an adult who has not been involved in Teen Court previously but would like to volunteer just a small portion of your time monthly please be sure to contact us as soon as possible! We can be contacted through one of our many websites, by email, or by phone. If you are a returning adult volunteer and are interested in being a case manager please get in touch with us so that we can get you this info as soon as possible! While the number of cases we heard increased we also had an incredible number of new volunteers join the Teen Court family last year, and we are welcoming with open arms new volunteers again this year. Unfortunately because of the overwhelming numbers of interested students, we are only going to be able to take a limited number from each school. You may have already noticed on our homepage or on Facebook and Twitter that all applications must be submitted by September 14th! All returning volunteers must also fill out a renewal application, all of these are available on our website in the “Become a Volunteer!” section. Please be sure to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have and don’t forget to take our Kick-Off Survey on our homepage!! See everyone September 25th!
