Teenage Voluntary Detention --

This program helps teenagers early-on, in hopes of avoiding the need for DFCS, YDC, or prison.  It is itself secular, but relies, if the parents wish, on family value groups such as religious groups and social worker groups.  It is also an opportunity to tutor teenagers with their school homework and to teach them life skills such as researching laws, using our courts, buying a car, balancing checkbooks and relationship skills.
