Annotation: Based on a January 1985 workshop in California, this publication describes the philosophy and goals of juvenile restitution and community service programs and provides descriptions of three model programs.
Abstract: Underlying restitution and community service approaches is a victim orientation, an emphasis on accountability and punishment, and an interest in offender treatment and rehabilitation. These foundations foster predictions that such programs will reduce recidivism, and studies of programs indicate that restitution is at least as effective in this respect as probation or incarceration. The Victim Offender Reconciliation Program arranges for meetings between juvenile property offenders and their victims during which a contract for restitution is negotiated. The Juvenile Restitution Project uses a work-release program for juveniles under court order to pay restitution and/or complete community service assignments. The Juvenile Alternative Work Service provides a low-cost alternative in work requring unskilled labor through supervised juvenile community service crews working on holidays and weekends. Training and information resources.
