Work program rules

Community Service The purpose of this sanction is to hold youth accountable to the community for delinquent acts. A youth may work for any Non-Profit agency in the area that is willing to allow them. The youth given this sanction are responsible for finding the agency, keeping track of the hours worked and turning that information in to their Probation Officer/Case Manager.
