The Time for Change program is structured on an evidence-
Every youth who participates in the Time for Change program will have a team consisting of their juvenile probation officer, a primary and secondary detention staff and their parents/guardians. An individualized plan will be developed by the team focused on specific risk areas targeting attitudes, values, and beliefs; substance use, family functioning, behavior issues, peer and other relationships, and school issues. Youth will focus on learning needed skills defined by the youth, parent, juvenile department, and other agencies involved in the youth’s care.
Youth may also be assigned to complete the Risk Management Curriculum. This specific curriculum focuses on understanding risks, responding to warning signs regarding risk, and being able to appropriately manage risk.
The youth and his/her team may determine other activities and/or curriculum that the youth may want to participate in such as attending Mental Health meetings or Alcohol and Drug meetings.
