Programs & Services

As a not-for-profit United Way-affiliated agency Reach for Youth attempts to provide some level of service to everyone who needs and requests it. Often people needing our services also have financial difficulties. Many times arrangements can be made for those who cannot afford to pay.

Do not let an inability to pay prevent you from seeking our assistance.

Reach for Youth may not be able to address every need of every person who walks through our doors. We often have to make referrals to outside agencies that will be better equipped to help an individual’s needs. We utilize the United Way’s 211 service as a resource to address different types of needs. 211 is a free anonymous phone service that makes it easier for people to find or give help.

If there is something you need that we cannot provide, we will try to get you to someone who can.

Teen Court

Teen Court is a great program offering an alternative to the Juvenile Justice penalties for young, first-time offenders. It works due to great young people who volunteer their time and care. It is an excellent way for young people to develop skills, learn about the law, and develop leadership skills. There are two great ways that young people can serve as volunteers in Teen Court.

  • Teen Court Jurors
  • Teen Court Attorneys
