Chesterfield Adolescent Reporting program

Jan 2, 2013

Chesterfield County Adolescent Reporting Program (CARP) is a sanction for youths ages 14 to 17 who are on probation in Chesterfield County and the city of Colonial Heights, Virginia.  The goal of the program is to teach youths the skills they need to successfully be released from probation and to complete high school. The program replaced the Youth Group Home, a 24-hour residential facility.  The residential facility was expensive to operate and data showed that 98% of youth served were not removed from the home because of safety issues, but instead for behavioral interventions.  Most youth returned home at the end of their stay.  In the new program CARP clients continue to have family support and maintain community supports because they remain at home.
