The Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance, Program Integrity Division, Joins Others to Combat Juvenile Delinquency in Sacramento County
SCIP and Sacramento Sheriff’s Youth Services Unit are excited to have Investigators from the Sacramento County Department of Human Assistance, Program Integrity Division, who work with and mentor students in the SHOCK Youth Diversion program. SHOCK stands for Self-Discipline, Honor, Obedience, Character and Knowledge. SHOCK students come from schools throughout Sacramento County and are between the ages of twelve and sixteen years old.
The investigators created a Career Exploration component that is now included in the daily SHOCK curriculum. Students are learning how to have a positive conversation with professionals from many different careers. Students will also practice completing job applications and will go through a mock job interview with restaurant owners Skip Wahl (Skips Kitchen) and Josh Paul (Chick-fil-A).
These investigators joined a growing list of community members who are working to re-direct negative behavior in our most vulnerable youth. The SHOCK program also partners with Terra Nova Counseling, Sacramento Children’s Home, and the California Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation at Solano. Weekly presenters include professionals from the FBI, Sacramento County Probation, Sheriff’s Youth Services Unit and Narcotics Unit, and the Roseville Police Department. SHOCK also includes parenting education programs such as Parent Project, Nurturing Parent Program, and Strengthening Families.
SHOCK is not a punishment – It is a positive experiential opportunity for a struggling student to interact with law enforcement in ways that will provide life skills. You can CLICK HERE for more information on SHOCK.
