Success Story: Given a second chance
Growing up is hard to do when you feel like a small fish in a big pond. When Jenna was thirteen she was arrested for shoplifting. She entered the Youth Court Diversion program with the mentality that she had done nothing wrong, because that was all she knew. Her trail was comprised of a peer jury, which she was then sentenced to 18 hours of community service, a personal letter of apology to the store, and she had to enroll in the YES program for shoplifting. She was assigned to volunteer at the Farmers Market; where she found her passion of botany as well as the outdoors.
Upon the completion of her community service, she continued to volunteer and went on to become a Defense Attorney to the Youth Court Diversion. Going through the system of the YES program she was given another chance and had the ability to graduate high school and enrolled in college as a full time student.
