Joint Base Charleston School Age Program

Paula B. Matthews, School Age Program Coordinator

Preparing for our after school accreditation was an awesome and very valuable learning experience for the Child and Youth Professionals at Charleston Air Force Base. Becoming familiar with and understanding the After School standards was a breeze because of the training webinars and the great customer service we received from all of the COA staff. Thank you for supporting our military families.

Purpose

Juvenile Justice Case Management Services coordinate the services and supervision that can help youth address problems and develop the attitudes and skills needed to make responsible choices, avoid negative behaviors, and become productive, connected, and law-abiding members of their communities.

Definition

Juvenile Justice Case Management Programs supervise, monitor, and facilitate the delivery of services to youth involved with the juvenile justice system. Services are often, but not always, provided to youth living in their own homes and communities. Services may be provided: (1) as diversion from the juvenile justice system when it is determined that youth can be informally supervised and supported; (2) when youth are adjudicated delinquent and the disposition ordered is community supervision; (3) as case management for youth who are adjudicated delinquent and placed in a residential program; and/or (4) as aftercare following participation in another more intensive program.

Note: Programs may provide different levels of supervision and services, depending on the risks and needs of youth served.

The organization’s services will be reviewed and matched with the most appropriate Service Standard, regardless of the population served. When an organization operates a program where the service population includes, but is not limited to, youth involved with the juvenile justice system, it may be more appropriate to complete another Service Standard, such as Case Management (CM).

Note: Please see JJCM Reference List for a list of resources that informed the development of these standards.
