Community Service Work Crew

The Community Service Work Crew serves Klickitat County. The work crew does work for City and County agencies, and non-profit groups. These hours are Court-ordered by the Judge as Community Service, or Court cost, or fine that are converted to Community Service hours. Diversion Community Service hours are also completed on the Work Crew.

During the summer months, the juveniles work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Winter months, while the juveniles are in school, the Crew works Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In 2001, 145 juveniles worked on the Crew, completing 5,772 hours for Klickitat County. These juveniles learn to work as a team, learn work ethics and the feeling of completion when a job is done. They also learn a variety of skills that they may take with them as they mature to adulthood.
