Forge (formerly Colorado Springs Teen Court)-719-475-7815
Municipal Courthouse 224 E. Kiowa St., Rm 230 Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Forge is a unique justice program for first-time offenders of misdemeanor crimes. It is designed to give youth between 11 and 18 who have broken the law and admitted their guilt a second chance. Those accepted into the program must go “to a sentencing trial” in a real courtroom with teens serving as prosecuting and defense attorneys. An adult judge presides, and a teen jury determines the sentence, including mandatory community service and jury duty in future teen courts. Upon successful completion of the program, charges against the defendant are dismissed.

Community Partners offer a wide range of services. The services offered under WAGEES are free of charge for most services, but there is often a progressive cost share for services such as housing. Some Community Partners have their own housing available to people who need such assistance and are willing to follow the rules and guidelines established by the Community Partner for safe and successful reentry. Housing resources are always in strong demand, which creates limitations in the duration and amount of support provided. Talk with your Community Partner for the most current information and availability.
