The Community Council's guest speaker this month was Nancy Vazquez, coordinator of the Far Rockaway Youth Court, which is a community based initiative that trains teenagers 14-18 to serve as jurors, judges and attorneys, who hear actual low-level crime cases involving their peers of 10-18 years old. Vasquez says the goal of the program is to use positive peer pressure and provide the necessary aid in preventing teens from becoming repeat offenders.
