  Erick Groskopf

Erick was born and raised in Los Angeles, California before moving to Colorado Springs in 1996.  He attended Corpus Christi Catholic School and graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 2004.  He studied Criminal Justice at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and graduated with a B.A. in 2010.  He also minored in Theater, something that has become a passion for him in his free time.  He began working with Colorado Springs Teen Court as an intern before graduating in May 2010.  After volunteering all summer, he was hired on as a Program Assistant.  Seven years later, he is now the Volunteer/Operations Director and is responsible for coordinating all Teen Court volunteers which include over 150 youth alone in addition to dozens of community members, attorneys, and judges.  In addition to people-wrangling and staying in contact with all of the volunteers, he is constantly seeing to the needs of the hundreds of defendants (and their parents) currently coming through the Teen Court program.
