Raise the Age


Raise the Age (RTA) Residential Program

Is for 16 and 17 year old non-violent offenders. RTA is designed as an alternative to placement in adult incarceration facilities.

  • Works with the youth and their family to reunite in a positive and productive setting
  • Placements do not exceed eight months, as it has been proven longer stays lead to re-offense
  • On the first day of admittance, the youth and caseworker develop a plan for reunification
  • To ensure successful reintegration, upon discharge, CHJC’s Aftercare worker continues to monitor the youth and family
