Parole Agents at a meeting

Education Services

DJJ operates an accredited school district, providing youth with the same high school curriculum in each of its four institutions that they would receive in their local community. Youth attend school each day to achieve a high school diploma. Youth whose commitment period is too short to fulfill that requirement are guided through a GED curriculum. DJJ considers a diploma or GED a minimum requirement for parole consideration. Certificates in a variety of vocations and college classes are offered to graduates as well.

DJJ  operates a high school, fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), in each of its correctional facilities.   All youths are required to attend school full-time. Those that complete their high school education, either with a diploma or a General Education Development (GED) certificate,  may participate in a college program, vocational training, or a combination of both. Many are assigned paid jobs within the facility, such as landscaping, food preparation or janitorial work. If they receive wages, a portion of those funds are collected to pay their court-ordered restitution.

Youths are also required to participate in the Impact of Crime on Victims Program which addresses the impact their crimes have had on their victims, their families, and the community.

Each youth is assigned a Youth Correctional Counselor (YCC) who will counsel them both individually and in a small group. The counselor will monitor their facility program and report that progress to the Juvenile Parole Board (JPB).
