Mission Statement

The mission of the juvenile corrections and detention system is to provide leadership for change for youth, family units, and communities.  It operates by creating legitimate, alternative pathways to adulthood through equal access to services that are least intrusive, culturally sensitive, and consistent with the highest professional standards.

The youth, while being detained at Northwest Ohio Juvenile Detention, Training and Rehabilitation Center, will be controlled, supported and protected with these standards in mind.

 
 

Informational Overview

This informational overview is a brief description of the programs we use here at NWOJDT &RC.  It is intended to help give you a better understanding of what will be happening to your child during his / her stay in our facility.  The length of stay depends on many things, such as how long the court process lasts and whether or not the youth has to wait for an opening at another agency.

It is our hope that we can make a difference and help to establish positive changes in your child while they are here with us.

Phase Program

The Detention Center operates within a structured schedule of daily activities.  The youth are expected to obey the established rules of conduct. Rules are in place to make it possible for all detainees to live, work, play and solve problems together, as well as to develop the self-discipline needed to control behavior.

A Phase Program is used to help improve attitudes and behavior by giving the youth reasons to feel good about themselves and to learn to work together as a team.       Upon entering our facility your child will be placed on Orientation Phase for a minimum of three days.  With advancement into the next Phase your child earns more privileges.  After passing all requirements of Orientation Phase, and following all rules, your child will be advanced to Phase 1, Phase 2, and up to Phase 3.

Education

Youth are required to attend class regardless of their age or academic status. Two certified teachers provide educational services year-round in the subject areas of Math, Science, Social Studies,  English, Physical Education, Workforce Employment, and Life Skills year round excluding weekends and holidays.
