The Evening Reporting program (ERC) is rooted in Balanced and Restorative Justice (BARJ) principles and Systems of Care. The program is an effort to keep youth in their home communities by providing meaningful community based interventions as an alternative to secure detention.
The program is a collaborative effort designed to work closely with schools, parents/families and other community service providers.The program serves Chester County’s pre-adjudicated and adjudicated delinquent adolescent males for 30 program days or 6 weeks.The participating youth attend Monday - Friday from 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Youth will be transported to and from the program by ERC staff. Daily activities are very structured and will include snacks and dinner, homework / study time, competency classes, community service, recreation, field trips, and workshops.To participate in the program, the youth must be referred by the Juvenile Probation Department and ordered to attend by the Chester County Court of Common Pleas.
