Summit School - Adolescent Opportunity Program

Tammy Witherspoon  This program is designed for adolescents who are experiencing difficulty complying with rules, social norms, or directions or who are having difficulty getting along with others at home, school and in the community. This program serves adolescents from ages twelve to seventeen that have committed offenses such as shoplifting, burglary, assault or robbery. The adolescents come into the program because they are at high-risk for being a repeat Opportunity. This program's intent is to prevent placement of these adolescents into the State Training Schools. All participants of this program are on probation or parole for six to twelve months and must obey all conditions of Court supervision, including program rules and regulations.

Our mission is to safely divert adolescents from any further involvement with the Youth Court System. The AOP will teach and encourage youths to become more responsible and productive citizens in their community. They will learn that they have choices and that there are consequences, both good and bad, based on the decisions they make. Youths will learn new ways to handle everyday problems more effectively, how to develop and maintain meaningful relationships and how to feel better about themselves. Hopefully, they will learn about themselves and the person they want to become.
