All programs are aimed at deterring juveniles from criminal behavior and with hopes of rehabilitation.Community based programs involve different types of programs including probation, restitution, counseling, vocational training and residential treatment programs such as foster care. Community based programs are for those juveniles who are not a threat to the community and have a greater chance of successfully completing a rehabilitation program.

Probation is a program that is ordered by the courts to a juvenile that is not considered to be a violent offender or a threat to the community. Probation can be suited for each offender for a certain period of time, as determined by the court. While on probation the court has the opportunity to impose certain restrictions to control the behavior of the juvenile such as drug testing, curfew and going to school. While on probation a juvenile can be ordered to other types of programs, such as my next area of discussion, counseling. A juvenile is placed on probation for a certain period of time as deemed necessary by the courts with a set of goals
