Event Description: Youth Aid Panel (YAP) run by the Center For Resolutions is looking for parent or adult community volunteers ! The Panel provides an alternative means for first time juvenile offenders at the discretion of an arresting police officer. Volunteers meet with juveniles after a summary-level arrest, such as an underage drinking ,curfew violation ,marijuana use, sexting or retail theft. The panels are poised to intervene in the lives of these young people as a mentor at the first moment they begin to make poor decisions. After an interview, the panel creates assignments, or resolutions, that upon completion, expunge the child’s criminal record. The assignments are typically composed of educational classes, community service, and individually tailored projects. The Youth Aid Panel Program has the youth and community working collaboratively to shift the youth from the label of “criminal” to feeling empowered, educated, and connected to their community. We are currently looking for volunteers that will be trained at the Center in Media on three consecutive Tuesdays, June 13th , 20th and 27th, 2017. The panel usually meets once a month. If you live or work in Norwood and would like more info please contact Denise Wusinich, Director of YAP at (610)566-7710 or dwusinich@center4resolutions.org.
