The DeKalb County Juvenile Court Services Mentoring Program helps to empower youth in our community to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. The mentoring program uses adult volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young person for a period of at least one year. By becoming part of the social network of adults and community members who care about the youth, the mentor can help youth develop and reach positive academic, career, and personal goals.
The DeKalb County Juvenile Court Services Partner Parent Program - While the social services agencies throughout DeKalb County work diligently to provide resources that allow the youth and family to remain intact, it occasionally is necessary for the family to separate and allow the parent to obtain the assistance needed to promote a healthy home life. They need to know their child is safe, well cared for, and someone to assist them in parenting their child.….thus….Partner Parents. Partner Parents are appointed through the 16th Judicial Court –DeKalb County to be Safe And Reliable Alternative Homes (SARAH) for youth.
