This service allows teens who are mandated to complete hours to fulfill their obligations. However, we feel that this should also be used as a learning opportunity. The activity should not be received as a means of punishment but an opportunity for teens to take ownership of their community. The teens meet twice a week at designated locations in the city of Downey. In addition, selected teens are providing service at the Downey Street Faire and Kids Day. Extra hours can be earned by voluntary attendance to our support groups.
The hours are logged daily and each participant has a limited time to complete the required hours.
