The Cuyahoga County Juvenile Justice Center provides for the safety and security of all juveniles housed there and manages their care while awaiting disposition in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court for charged criminal violations. Following disposition, the juvenile may be committed to a State Training School, sentenced to the Juvenile Detention Center, placed in a residential treatment center, placed on Probation, or released to parents or guardians. The goal of Detention Center Staff is to help the residents become more productive citizens when released to the community. Trained staff, volunteers, and student interns facilitate a variety of programming available to residents, addressing such issues as youth violence, chemical dependency, job readiness and life skills. In addition, residents continue their education through the Cleveland Public School System via on-site classrooms and teachers.
