Unit 4 Individual Project
I am an employee at the Matter juvenile rehabilitation center in the juvenile probation
office. In my role, I will be assigned some juveniles who have committed status offenses and
are under probation. My job is supervising their activities, counseling them, and making sure
the juveniles report to counseling sessions, report to school on time, report to any assigned
job, and ensure each juvenile attend a drug screen. The main goal is assisting them to know
there is a better way of living instead of committing crimes. After starting to work in this
department, I have realized there is a significant need for a detention center so that status
offender is separated from criminal offenders.
Currently, all the juveniles are housed in the same unit regardless of the type of crime
they committed. And they also go to the same court and are also sentenced within the same
facility. However, the organization believes status offenders have better chances of
improving if they were attended in separated from criminal offenders (Bonnie, 2019). In my
line of work, I have witnessed several status offenders who later turn to be criminal offenders
have completed their probation terms, and I significantly associate this negative
transformation with their association with capital offenders.
This upgrade program is mainly seeking to isolate status offenders to try to turn them
around and make them useful to the community. It is the aspiration and goals of the
department that every teenager admitted at the facility will leave a transformed and also with
substantive knowledge and ambitions of not returning to the crime side of the detention
within the facilities (Ayers, 2020). Also, the company hopes that some youths will be more
inspired by the activities in the institutions and what we have done to them, and after getting,
they become the motivation to other youths by assisting them to live responsible lives.
Hopefully, we will attain this goal by meeting the following objectives; finding a
piece of land that will accommodate both units and thus have criminal offenders and status
offenders in separate units. To achieve this, we must secure adequate funding, get some bids
of construction, select a bidding company, employ more workers, and eventually open the
unit and admit inmate and transfer some to their respective facilities. We are hoping to
complete the program by December 2020. Mainly, to achieve this, we will be seeking
funding from the following grants, and the grants are listed to which they apply, firstly,
Category 2: Multi-State Mentoring Program. Secondly, Public Welfare Foundation Grant for
Youth Justice, and thirdly, OJJDP FY 19 State System Enhancements for Youth Offenders.
