The Official AYC Page - Justice for Youth by Youth.
Anchorage Youth Court ("AYC") is an organized and effective juvenile justice system......providing Anchorage youth with opportunities for personal growth and an understanding of our legal system.
AYC gives youth offenders personal accountability, youth attorneys good training and the opportunity to make a significant difference in others' lives and the public an effective and comprehensive public safety system.
AYC's purpose: Stop illegal behavior while encouraging understanding and respect for the law through positive peer pressure in a formal court setting.
The Concept: The idea for Anchorage Youth Court, incorporated as a 501(c)3 non profit in 1989, started when Blythe Marston, a local attorney, shared information she had gathered from the Ithaca Youth Court in New York, while attending Cornell University. She and others from the Anchorage Bar Association Young Lawyers Section organized a town meeting in 1988 to explore developing a local youth court.
