At the Youth Center we are very proud of the work that has been done by residents and staff to create this beautiful mural on the walls of the R.T.P. dayroom. We are especially grateful for the talent of Youth Specialist Peggy Jennings.
The Youth Center, is a 50 bed juvenile facility that caters to the needs of court involved delinquents. The Jackson County Youth Center houses two programs: Detention and the Residential Treatment Program.
The mission of the Youth Center is to demonstrate positive leadership as we provide services for youth and their families in the least intrusive, culturally sensitive and most humane way possible.
It is the vision of the Youth Center, in partnership with all associated agencies, to provide for the safety, well being, dignity and positive development of every person we serve.
