Wilson County Community Service/Restitution
This program is the only one that serves the Wilson County Juvenile Court and Teen Court for community service/restitution for youth 7-17. The youth are referred to this program from Juvenile Court and/or Teen Court to complete court ordered community service/restitution hours. The youth complete these hours through a wide range of projects such as Gang Graffiti clean-up, projects at Wilson County Schools, other non-profits, food drives and other special projects, i.e. Adopt-a-highway.
Afterschool tutoring provided by volunteers in our computer lab two days a week. Volunteers assist with completing assignments and then assist with subjects that youth in k-5 may be having difficulty with in school. We only accept a limited number of youth so that the youth can have one-on-one interaction with our volunteers.
This program provides hands-on life skill classes, workshops and/or activites for our youth, families and/or volunteers in subjects such as: Gang Awareness, Science, Health and Safety Awareness, and many other topics.
