Benefits of Community Service

  • Teenagers gardeningYouth have the opportunity to take active responsibility for their actions to repair and make amends, at least symbolically, to the damage that resulted from their poor choices and criminal activity.
  • Reduces overcrowding and the unnecessary use of detention but still holds youth accountable for their actions.
  • Youth work at non-profit agencies and do special projects that contribute to the community in a positive way, especially those that are most in need.
  • Youth doing community service have an opportunity to work side-by-side with positive adult role models and gain new skills and work habits that can be used beyond the community service experience.
