The San Joaquin County Superior courthouse in Stockton is proud to offer a Youth Leadership Academy this summer. This year the program will run from June 11 to July 13 and will require the selected students to be present from 8:30 a.m. until noon, Monday through Friday.

The Youth Leadership Academy provides students with a unique learning experience — direct exposure to the justice system in operation. Students will also have access to the four components to the curriculum:

  • Classroom instruction by justice system professionals including criminal law and procedure, traffic laws, jury service, substance abuse, statutory rape, domestic violence, child support laws, gangs and other relevant topics.
  • Students will be paired with a mentor in the justice system in an area of their interest to provide personal guidance and insight into careers within the justice system.
  • Students will also observe actual court proceedings including criminal matters, Drug Court, Family Law Court, and domestic violence cases.
  • Field trips will include tours of the courthouse, county jail, police department, a SWAT demonstration, and Third District Court of Appeal.

Students will be responsible for their own transportation to and from court daily. Graduating from this program looks great on your resume or college. If you have any questions, please see your counselor at the high school you attend.

Applications must include a reference from a teacher or counselor, and must be received by the Court no later than May 18.

Ren Pham-Peck is a counselor at Bear Creek High School.
