Duties of Juvenile Careworkers

The primary mission of juvenile correctional facilities is to prepare juveniles for a successful return to their communities. The focus is on programming and treatment, with security acting as crucial support. Direct care staff play a vital role in the mission of juvenile corrections supervising juveniles in a controlled setting. They may be called youth specialist, juvenile correctional officer, youth worker, and juvenile detention officer. We will use the term “juvenile careworker.”

This course examines the juvenile careworker's role as a role model, supervisor, and leader, as well as his/her duties or responsibilities in programming and treatment, supervision and leadership, and safety and security.
