How can I grow with Valdez Youth Court?
"Living in a small town like Valdez, professionalism and integrity are important character points in situations like this. Valdez Youth Court has taught me to be professional and has helped me grow with integrity. Being able to take a case with someone you know and not be biased is important in making critical decisions. Everyone is accountable for their own actions. I am grateful for the years that I have been in Youth Court and the lessons that I have learned in those years." -Sophia Palomar, VYC member and recipient of VYC 2020 Scholarship
"The underlying premise of restorative practices is that people happier, more cooperative, more productive and more likely to make positive changes when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them."
