At-Risk Youth Getting Help From Area Adults

Blend Images

It is a special program that pairs adults with juvenile offenders who need a positive influence and is called the Restorative Community Service Co-Worker Training program.

Spokesman Johnathon Umana says adults serve alongside the kids even working community hours the kids have been sentenced to by the courts.

It allows the kids to see there are people in this community that care what they’re doing. So it allows that change of perception. There’s an adult in this community that cares about my well being and getting me on the right track.

Umana is looking for adults 21 years old or older to be a volunteer and work beside the at-risk kids to provide positive feedback and interaction. Anyone interested can learn more about the program March 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Yakima County Juvenile Court on Jerome Avenue in Yakima.
