Juvenile Impact Program (JIP)
The JIP program is designed for first-time offenders who are referred to the program either through the juvenile court system as an alternative sentence or by concerned parents. The program requires the juvenile to take responsibility for their offense and admit the impact the crime caused. The juvenile then participates in a “boot camp” designed to instill self-discipline and self-esteem in a positive, but strict, environment. Juveniles are given the opportunity to learn to respect themselves and others, and to improve their general attitude, their ability to effectively communicate, and their family relationships. Parents are required to participate in a parenting class in conjunction with the boot camp. There is a fee for this program.
