  The Ocean/Monmouth Day Program provides a dual capacity for Monmouth and Ocean County Judges through an alternative sentencing option to Juvenile Justice Commission’s residential and secure placements for adjudicated youth. The program accepts both male and female parolees and probationers between the ages of 14 and 18. Juveniles assigned to the program, must reside in towns within Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The average length of stay for a probationer is approximately 5 months, depending on his or her progress. The length of stay for a parolee is determined on a case- by- case basis, depending on their individual needs.
  Our mission is to provide both education and counseling to juveniles, while allowing them to remain in their own community. We offer organized recreational outings, as well as Health and Physical Education. In addition, participants are afforded the opportunity to participate in the Phoenix anti-gang training and life skills curriculum. Participant’s substance use issues will be addressed through the New Freedom curriculum. They are also afforded the opportunity to perform community service. The program also provides medical services on an emergency basis; otherwise all medical needs are expected to be addressed at home by parents or guardians.  
  The program operates Monday through Friday. Participants arrive between 8:30-9:00 a.m. and leave the facility between 3:00- 4:00 p.m. Participants receive breakfast and lunch daily, basic chores are also incorporated into their routine. Participants that choose to, also have the option to bring their own lunch.
