Juvenile Community Corrections (JCC)
The Juvenile Community Corrections (JCC) program is an alternative for youth on probation or supervised release, providing services to assist adjudicated youth in successfully completing their probation or release requirements for positive discharge out of the juvenile system.
Program referrals are made to JCC service providers from juvenile probation officers, district court judges, district attorneys, public defenders, private attorneys, juvenile correctional facilities or the CYFD supervised release panel. The program utilizes a team approach which includes the client, family, JCC-contracted agency, local public schools staff, juvenile probation officers and other significant individuals in the client’s life. The program provides participants with program services based on the client’s individualized needs but focuses primarily on teaching life skills (job search support, social skills development, school support and tutoring, and other services offered within the community) so that the youth can learn how to manage their affairs appropriately and responsibly.
JCC served 465 youth through 15 contracted providers with services in 30 counties, supported by a budget of approximately $2.6 million in 2021.
