A Youth Diversion Program for 12-17 Year Old Students
Student referrals are taken on an ongoing basis
The Sheriff’s Community Impact Program (SCIP) is proud to introduce the S.H.O.C.K. program to students, parents, and school staff in Sacramento County. This very successful youth diversion program was developed by sheriff’s deputies from the Apple Valley Police Activities League and the Apple Valley Police Department, located approximately 92 miles east of Los Angeles.
The S.H.O.C.K. program along with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, will take a leadership role by partnering with Community-Based Organizations, local businesses, and other youth-serving agencies, to reach out to those youth considered at risk for making poor choices in their lives. Chronic absenteeism, continuous disruption to classroom learning, signs of experimentation with drugs and/or alcohol, as well as involvement with the gang lifestyle, are considered behaviors that could lead to devastating life-long consequences.
This program is designed to:
- Re-direct negative behavior
- Provide partnerships with law enforcement, the community and schools
- Increase understanding of the criminal justice system
- Emphasize the legal consequences of violating the law
Anticipated S.H.O.C.K. Academies:
Class #15-1 begins in September. Referrals to this class are accepted on an ongoing basis.
The Sacramento Children’s Home provides the eVIBE program for SHOCK. As part of the SHOCK curriculum, students will be a part of the Too Good for Violence class. Parents are highly encouraged to also enroll in the Nurturing Parenting Program that will run concurrently with the SHOCK program. Both of these programs are offered free of charge and there are great incentives for completing the program.
