Goffstown Area Juvenile Diversion Program
The Juvenile Diversion Program offers first-time juvenile offenders a way to make right whatever wrong they’ve done while by-passing court proceedings and a criminal record. The offending youths must admit their guilt to be accepted into the program and are given a contract of specific consequences to complete within a specified time frame.
Contracts of Consequences may included: performing community service, paying restitution, writing letters of apologies, writing research papers, completing drug and alcohol education courses, performing in home drug testing under parental supervision and complete counseling session.
Goffstown Area Youth Forum
The youth forum continues to generate vital discussion on issues facing kids today. Monthly meetings continue to attract an average of 10 to 20 participants. Participants include high school youth, clergy, interested parents, town officials, mental health workers, youth advocacy groups, education, court representatives and law enforcement.
Youth Attendant Program
This program provides temporary foster care for juveniles who are in custody, but not under arrest. Attendants are called by area police departments when they have a juvenile in custody and no adult family member or guardian can take immediate care of the child. This may include a baby whose parents were injured in an auto accident or children whose parents are under arrest, or even run-away teenagers.
This program serves high school-aged youth with activities every other Friday from 6pm to 10pm. Activities may include a rock concert, garage band concert, poetry slam or open mic night at our café location, at 9 North Mast Road. Adult volunteers provide oversight and supervision.
