The Pierre Elks Lodge has donated $500 to help support the Central Teen Court’s prevention efforts.
Central Teen Court is a voluntary diversion program of the 6th Judicial Circuit through Capital Area Counseling Service. The program serves youth, mostly from Hughes and Stanley counties, but does receive referrals from surrounding counties.
Since July 1, 2018, 39 youth have enrolled in the Central Teen Court program with having alcohol or drug related cases.
