While in detention, residents follow a highly structured level program.
Upon first being admitted, residents will enter Level I Programming. This is an orientation level in which residents are required to read the resident handbook and become familiar with Detention Center rules and procedures. All residents must pass an exam that covers the rules and procedures as well as completing an autobiography; they then become eligible to advance to the next level.
Level II is a less restrictive level, which allows residents to participate in chores, school, P.E., various group sessions, and earn evening "positives," etc.
All residents will have an adequate amount of "quiet time" which should be used to reflect upon their behavior and the choices, which led them to being placed in a secured juvenile detention center.
