Intern, Delaware Juvenile Civil Citation Program (Delaware - multiple locations)<p><em> </em>The Delaware statewide Juvenile Civil Citation Program is a civil alternative to the formal arrest and criminal prosecution of youth under 18 who commit eligible low level misdemeanor offenses.  Its primary purpose is to prevent further delinquency, hold youth accountable for their offense, and appropriately address participants' needs without creating a criminal record.

During the 90 day program period participating youth are required to contact pre-assigned community providers to complete an assessment to identify their risk, needs and strengths, complete five (5) hours of community service, a letter of apology, and to work towards reducing potential future contact with the juvenile justice system.</p><p>The program began on September 10, 2015, and to date has received over 900 youth referrals. It is housed in Department of Services for Children Youth and Families (DSCYF) Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services (YRS) in the Administrative Building on the Main Campus in Wilmington, DE.
