Prosecution Alternatives for Youth
|The Seminole County Prosecution Alternatives for Youth (P.A.Y.) consists of Teen Court, J.A.S.P., the Juvenile Alternative Services Program. These programs exist as alternatives to formal court proceedings for delinquent juveniles. We promote accountability to the victim and the community, through activities such as restitution and community service work. We also provide opportunities for personal improvement, such as classes, counseling, and work skills. |
P.A.Y. is staffed with 9 full time staff members, and over 50+ volunteers. Our Volunteer Hearing Officers are the heart of the P.A.Y. Program. Each Hearing Officer completes a thirty hour training course which includes Juvenile Justice Procedures, Juvenile Criminal Law, Communication/Conflict Resolution, Hearing Procedures, and Sanction Philosophy. In order to remain active in the program, each Hearing Officer must complete a minimum of six hours in-service training annually. If you are interested in volunteering as a Hearing Officer, you may contact us regarding the matter.
