Program Snapshot

The Worcester Juvenile Resource Center (WJRC) is an innovative partnership between our agency and the Worcester Juvenile Court, the Office of Community Corrections, the Department of Probation, and the Worcester Public Schools to reduce recidivism, ensure high school completion, and provide services and supports which enable court-involved youth to thrive in their home and school communities.     

The program operates daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and includes morning classes taught by licensed teachers employed by the Worcester school system, followed by therapeutic groups and activities led by WJRC staff in the afternoon hours. Clients attending the WJRC receive individual counseling, life skills and job readiness training, and vocational education. The boys also participate in volunteer community service projects for three to six hours per week.
