The academy is facilitated by two probation officers trained in a variety cognitive interventions. Youth are able to earn meaningful incentives for participation in group, such as earning community work service hours and reduction in time on probation. Parents are also encouraged to participate in bi-weekly education classes, designed to empower and support them while their youth is on probation supervision.
