Children Attending Court

Children Attending Court

Over the past decade, there has been growing support and interest across the country for giving children a voice in their court proceedings. In Nebraska, Project Everlast emphasizes "nothing about me without me", a philosophy which includes having the youth involved in the court process. The Through the Eyes of the Child Initiative has supported youth having a voice in their future, and has supported activities that increase the frequency of youth attending their court hearings or having their opinions conveyed in the court.
