• Juvenile Corrections

    Certificate

    The Juvenile Corrections Certificate is a one-year program developed in cooperation with the Oregon Youth Authority. Students are prepared to interview for an entry level position in a juvenile correctional facility. The certificate curriculum is challenging and is aimed at providing the skills most desired for working within the juvenile corrections system in Oregon.

    Course work includes cooperative work experience, hands-on experience in a correctional agency enabling students to demonstrate the skills and knowledge acquired in the academic courses in a practical manner.

    PROGRAM OUTCOMES

    Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:

    • explain the function of juvenile corrections in the United States in terms of historical roots, structure and contemporary issues;
    • determine causes of juvenile delinquency, and identify system responses based upon the various theories of causation;
    • identify conditions that are specific to working with juvenile offenders in an institutional or community setting, and develop strategies for coping with those conditions;
    • analyze contemporary issues in the juvenile corrections system in the United States and outline possible responses to those issues,
    • communicate effectively both verbally and in writing.

    CAREERS

    Career opportunities are within secure facilities or in the community and may include youth correctional counselor, juvenile detention officer and group life coordinator.
