All of the court programs are offered for the 19th Judicial Circuit Court to assist the public by offering National Safety Council classes for Traffic Violators, a course for Divorcing Parents of Minor Children, and coordinating and providing volunteers to Court Services offering support and mentoring for the Adult and Juvenile Probation Programs and the Live Victim Impact Panel for DUI offenders.

Defensive Driving

This program is offered for the 19th Judicial Circuit Court and consists of several National Safety Council courses designed to promote safe-driving practices. Most of those attending defensive driving courses are directed to do so by the courts as a means of ticket reduction. Individuals may, however, register on their own as "volunteers" to meet the requirements of other jurisdictions, as "good faith" gestures for upcoming court appearances or as a means of developing personal skills.

We also offer the powerful National Safety Council’s "Alive at 25" program for teen drivers. This highly interactive four-hour program teaches young drivers how to take responsibility for their own driving behavior. Parents play an important role in properly preparing teens to drive. To help parents in this process, we offer the National Safety Council's "Alive at 25 Parent Program".

Live Victim Impact Panel

The College of Lake County in conjunction with the 19th Judicial Circuit Court and the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM), is now offering the Live Victim Impact Panel at the College's Grayslake campus. The panel's presentation is targeted towards individuals charged with DUI offenses as referred by the 19th Judicial Circuit Court, as well as for the public at large. This presentation is offered once a month at the College of Lake County in Grayslake. Pre-registration is necessary. Cost of the program is $55.00. For further information and registration, please call (847) 543-2185.

Family Parenting

The Children First Foundation Program is for parents of minor children seeking dissolution of marriage. This 4-hour course gives parents an opportunity to learn about and discuss the effects of divorce on minor children and how to minimize the effects. This course is held on Saturday mornings, weekday evenings and weekday afternoons. The cost is $50.00 per participant for the instructor-led course or $100.00 per participant for the online course. Contact us for more information.

Probation Support Program

The College recruits, trains and assigns volunteers to work with juveniles and adults during their probation period. The program provides support, mentoring and supervision of these individuals. Contact us for more information at (847) 543-2100.
