Participating in a Teen Court session requires respectful and responsible behavior, as well as professional attire. It is important to adhere to the dress code at all times. If you do not own clothing that is appropriate for court and cannot afford to purchase new items, please contact the Teen Court staff for assistance. We maintain a clothes closet in the Teen Court office for those in need. (941) 861-8460
