The mission of the Youth Services Center is to protect the community from those youth placed in its custody. Youth are detained in a safe, secure, and humane environment in accordance with the principles of direct supervision and in accordance with American Correctional Association standards.

  • House male and female residents that have been charged with a delinquent act in 78-bed juvenile detention facility
  • Pre-adjudication facility, meaning all youth in our custody have not been “sentenced” and their case is working its way through the court process
  • Offer several programs that include education, recreation, therapeutic group activities, mental health and substance abuse counseling as well as community sponsored activities
  • Provide education from middle school to 12th grade to residents detained at YSC, which allows for transitioning back into their normal school setting
  • Provide a transitional education program for youth that are long term suspended and a continuation school which provides General Educational Development (GED) preparation and GED testing through Albuquerque Public Schools (APS)
  • Provide alternative supervision programs that reduce length of stay at YSC that includes Global Positioning System (GPS) ankle bracelet monitoring and staff making home visits, and drug testing while youth are on court ordered conditions of release
  • Provide behavioral health and substance abuse services for youth diagnosed with mental health illnesses (program has helped reduce recidivism)
  • Provide specific treatment programs that reduce lengths of stay in detention and are directed at youth issues
  • Provide access to registered nurses every day of the week including weekends for all residents
  • Provide scheduled clinic hours for youth needing treatment by physicians, psychiatrist, and dentists
  • Provide case managers to residents, that also act as the point of contact for parents and legal custodians of residents
