Worth Township is currently recruiting for their Peer Jury Program. This program is designed as an alternative to Juvenile Court. They receive real cases from the local police departments as well as Bridgeview and Markham Courthouses. The cases are misdemeanors and minor civil infractions only.

Please pick up an application in the Guidance Office if you are interested in this program.
