Youth Community Service

​​The court's philosophy is that every delinquent offender owes a debt to his or her community for inconveniences resulting from a youngster's offenses. As part of probation, the youngster repays that debt by contributing community service work. A certain number of hours, usually between 30 and 100, are ordered as part of the disposition. Recruited community agencies agree to provide supervised work opportunities in which youngsters can serve their hours.
