Youth WRAP is a weekend program for young adults on probation. The program engages teens and young adults ages 14 to 26 in meaningful, service-oriented work on Saturdays. WRAP members rehabilitate churches, plant trees, work in community gardens, and distribute food to those most in need.

  • A great way to engage in career readiness as a first time job or part-time job for young people.
  • Networking opportunities available for individuals who are interested.
  • To serve the community, learn to be a team player and build a sense of community with fellow YouthWRAP members.

  1. Application


Good work, great skills

While helping their communities, clients help themselves by gaining skills that can enhance their opportunities for employment. In addition to basic life skills, WRAP members learn how to take direction, work as a team, and resolve conflict successfully. They also learn how satisfying it can be to connect with others and give back to the community.



A restorative justice approach

Youth WRAP (Weekend Restorative Assistance Program) uses a restorative justice approach. It was created to help young adults on probation build stronger connections to their community and understand their responsibility for its safety and success. Once these young adults transition out of the justice system, those connections can help them move past prior mistakes and stay on the right track.
