How our events support Blount county youth court?

The Blount County Youth Court is a volunteer organization. It receives no state or federal funding and relies on the generosity of the community to continue its work for at-risk youth. All funds are used to support the program, its volunteers, and to provide a scholarship to one juror every year.

Swearing-In Ceremony




Jurors must be sworn in by Judge Kenlyn Foster to participate in court hearings. This ceremony will take place after training and before the first official court session. Parents and friends are invited to attend this event!
