Juvenile service workers help children and adolescents in human service settings. Those in this field may work in juvenile courts, juvenile detention centers, residential treatment facilities for youth, addiction treatment centers and other agencies that help at-risk youth and juvenile offenders. Although most positions require only an associate’s degree, students should consult with the Grand Rapids Community College Juvenile Services Program Coordinator concerning degree requirements for specific jobs. Employment within the Criminal Justice Field may be delayed or denied depending on a history of convictions involving felonies, misdemeanors, and/or involving controlled substances. If you have questions or concerns about how this may affect you, please contact the Criminal Justice Department.
