What If…?

I have an issue with someone on Work Crew?

Let the Coordinator know. Fighting, arguing, bullying, etc will not be tolerated.

I don’t have a lunch?

I don’t do well on Work Crew?

You are graded on: Attitude, Work Ethic, Staff Relations, Peer Relations and Safety.

The Work Crew program is beneficial to both the youth and the community. Youth have the opportunity to gain job skills, work ethic, customer service and develop a sense of belonging to their community. The community and non-profit organizations benefit from the hundreds of hours of community service that are served annually.

Restorative Justice is an approach that holds the offender accountable for their actions, while repairing the victim’s losses. By performing Work Crew the youth are giving back to the community they may have harmed.
