Community Service & Restitution
The Juvenile Community Service and Restitution Program works with youth who have committed crimes in Chatham County and are assigned community service hours and/or to pay back money to victims. Through this program, youthful offenders learn important lessons in responsibility and accountability and often develop positive relationships with their adult supervisors. Young people are also taught valuable life and job skills while volunteering.
Our Family Advocacy program provides children and their parents involved with the Department of Juvenile Justice with support from Communities In Schools of Chatham County staff as they learn valuable communication skills and accountability to help them have success at a school, at home, and in the community.
