  • The Missouri Department of Social Services, Division of Youth Service (DYS), will focus on Missouri's most serious, at-risk juvenile offenders and provide them with an opportunity to experience healthy relationships, learn vocational skills, and develop a sense of community responsibility and work ethic. The target population is adjudicated offenders ages14-21 who are committed to DYS. The program will be available to youth statewide and will include youth committed to the dual jurisdiction program, who will serve adult probation after completing their sentence in a juvenile facility. DYS will provide hands-on vocational exploration instruction in some of its residential sites. It will also partner with local community colleges and trade schools, enlist industry involvement, and employ mentors/custodians to increase personal productivity and self-reliance while youth receive aftercare services. In addition, DYS will establish programs for youth who successfully complete an individualized curriculum of treatment and educational goals and objectives in a residential setting. During a youth's transition to the community, DYS will help the youth pursue formal vocational/career skills, acquire job retention abilities, and develop independent living skills. Youth who meet the enrollment requirements of community colleges, vocational schools, or trade industry apprenticeship programs will be assigned a mentor/custodian roommate on the campus or in the immediate community.

  • In Missouri there are two work release centers. These centers are not traditional centers in that residents have been granted parole release but require additional employment-related assistance. When a prisoner has been granted parole, he or she is transferred to a work release center. The individual leaves the facility on a daily basis to look for employment. When the person is stabilized, i.e. employed, housing secured, s/he is released to parole supervision. The work release centers are under the supervision of the Division of Parole and Probation, which is a part of the Department of Corrections.

Parole/probation officers have established, through the years, relationships with local employers who hire recently released offenders. Referrals are made to local career centers and local substance abuse treatment centers.
