Service Learning Courses

Service Learning Courses - Juvenile Justice


Students who take the traditional juvenile justice course will work directly with the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) of Utah County for various projects. They include an annual Christmas stocking exchange and working with the foster care program. For Spring 2016 students of this course created a mentoring concept as well as a college day for youth in foster care, grades 10-12. Additionally, students have helped with the 5k “Village Run” and Easter egg hunt with DCFS. If you are an online student of juvenile justice, you will have the choice of a youth serving agency and commit to 20 hours of active engagement for this course.
