The family consists of the parents, a 19-year-old son, 18-year-old twin daughters, a 15-year-old son, a 10-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old daughter.  Please consider donating household items for their apartment with the link here. Donations can be dropped off in Room 320 or at the front desk between now and Friday, Oct. 18.  Project Welcome student volunteers will help set up the family’s apartment the following week.  For questions, please contact Mrs. Salzman at ksalzman@omahamarian.org. As always, thanks for your generosity!

Teen Court

Teen Court is composed of volunteer middle and high school teens from Sarpy County and Douglas County. They serve as jurors, bailiffs, prosecuting attorneys, and defense attorneys. In those roles they are able to question juveniles. Jury members decide the consequences for each defendant and a Diversion officer helps ensure that the defendant completes the assigned consequences. The juvenile defendants who successfully complete Teen Court get their record sealed and don’t have to report the charge to potential employers or colleges. Some of the benefits of being a volunteer are the ability to serve the community, improved knowledge of the legal system, a hands-on experience for those interested in careers in law, reference letters for jobs, clubs, and scholarships. You can also find more information about our program at our website: sarpyteencourt.com
