Youth Aid Panel
The Youth Aid Panel (YAP) an alternative to the juvenile court system for first-time juvenile offenders, allowing them to avoid a criminal record in exchange for completed assignments. The YAP assignments can include community service, book reports, completion of safety courses, and others. The Panel’s goal is to prevent juvenile offenders from continuing delinquent behavior while making them responsible for their actions through service to the victim and/or community.
