Aiding Draper's Youth

Recipe for Success


Peer Court utilizes the skills and abilities of a diverse population of Draper youth. The program helps to eliminate geographical and social barriers and unites youth throughout the city as they collaborate to intervene with referred youth.

This program presents a model for the belief that diverse group of students can work together and come to a consensus on clear, positive standards for behavior. By becoming mentors, role models, and key players in their community, they realize they can make a difference in their own and others’ lives.

Other ways this program aids the children and community:
  • Partnering in preventing juvenile crime
  • Empowering youth as stakeholders in their community
  • Gaining hands-on knowledge about citizenship and law
  • Learning public speaking and leadership skills
  • Communities recovering losses due to juvenile crimes
  • Communities gaining more confidence in youth
  • Reducing juvenile court backlogs
