The Weekend Program began in the fall of 2004 and is an alternative to confinement for status offenders (Truancy, Dependency, and At-Risk-Youth) who are in contempt of their court order.
Youth are ordered to attend up to four Saturdays. Each Saturday consists of a three hour class followed by three hours of community service. The program encourages status offenders to identify reasons for continued violation of at-risk and truancy petitions and to learn the skills and specific steps needed to make better decisions in the future. In the afternoon youth participate in service activities at non-profit sites or special projects throughout the community.
