The goal of the Youth Court Alliance is to re-engage truant students in school and divert these students and their families from entering the Magisterial District Court for truancy hearings.  Currently, Youth Court Alliance is in York City School District. Red Lion Area School District and Northeastern School District. Student volunteers go through months of training to serve as lawyers, judges, bailiffs, and most importantly, as jurors who will provide dispositions aimed at reconnecting the truant youth to their school. Dispositions include jury duty, community service, research papers, and tutoring.        

York County Youth Court Alliance is a program of United Way of York County in partnership with the York County Truancy Prevention Initiative and York County Office of Children, Youth, and Families.
