Section 2602.170 Employment of Youth

 

a) Introduction

Active and inquisitive youth need to have their time occupied. Idleness contributes to disciplinary problems and to the deterioration of programs.

 

b) Minimum Standard Work Assignments

Youth may be required to accept work assignments on the grounds of the detention center or other public facility, except as prohibited by law.

 

c) Recommendations

 

1) A volunteer work program for youth may be created. This should be closely supervised and restricted to general housekeeping chores.

 

2) Youth who volunteer to work should indicate their willingness in writing.
