The Central Shenandoah Valley Office on Youth offers a variety of programs and services to court-involved youth. These services are designed to deter juvenile crime and provide alternatives to detention. Below is a listing of services offered by the OOY to individuals referred by Court Services Unit staff and Juvenile and Domestic Relations Courts. These services are provided through a combination of OOY staff and contracted professionals, and are funded through the Virginia Juvenile Community Crime Control Act, which is overseen by the State Department of Juvenile Justice.
These programs are provided by state funding from the Virginia Juvenile Justice Community Crime Control Act (VJJCCCA). The purpose of the VJCCCA is "to deter crime by providing immediate, effective punishment that emphasizes accountability of the juvenile offender for his actions as well as reduces the pattern of repeat offending" (Code of Virginia, §16.1-309.2).
