Youth Services is a community-based program established in 1979 in our County. The program provides the youth of Moore County with an opportunity to be accountable for their actions, to become a positive influence for their peers, and to contribute to the improvement of their community.
The program provides offenders the opportunity to complete monetary and/or community service restitution for crimes committed. Youth between the ages of seven and fifteen are referred to the program in response to an adjudication order from Juvenile Court.
Funding pays for psychological evaluations required by the juvenile court counselors to assist the counselors in determining the appropriate resources required for youth involved with the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
A ropes course is series of individual and group physical challenges that require a combination of teamwork skills and individual commitment. The challenges are designed to increase the levels of trust, cooperation and communication within the group. It is available for all age groups.
