Youth Day Reporting Centers (DRCs)
San Bernardino County Probation operates four regionally located Youth Day Reporting Centers (DRCs); Barstow, High Desert, Montclair and YJC. DRC services are also available in Joshua Tree. Referrals are accepted from parents, schools, social workers, community partners, and Probation Officers. Contact your local DRC to initiate the referral process.
Youth DRCs offer several intervention and prevention services for youth over age 11. Specialized services for youthful offenders ages 18-23 are also offered at off-site locations. DRC’s partner with Department of Behavioral Health, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, and other community based organizations.
Through collaboration, Youth DRCs provide community-based treatment, community service projects, educational support, job and vocational training, arts and entertainment programs, out of school activities and summer day camps for youth. The DRCs additionally include parenting activities, workshops, and special events in an effort to promote awareness on issues impacting our community.
Services are provided no cost to youth, parents or families. Youth and parents who complete DRC programs may be eligible to receive completion incentives (gift cards, participate in opportunity drawings or other items). Each DRC offers a community closet for youth in need of hygiene items, socks, undergarments and school supplies. Clothing assistance may be available on a case-by-case basis.
The Youth Justice Center (YJC) in San Bernardino offers community-based treatment programs designed to provide youth a variety of intervention and prevention services.
The classes and programs offered to youth follow the National Curriculum & Training Institute (NCTI) curriculums. All of these curriculums are cognitively designed, evidenced-based, and have been demonstrated to be effective in changing behavior and reducing recidivism rates.
