who remain in custody by order of the court. 

Youth Guidance Center is a minimum security facility housing 
boys and girls ages 11 to 18 years. YGC offers several unique 
programs that focus on the wide range of juvenile offenders 
needs. The primary goal for each of these programs is to 
develop minors emotionally, behaviorally, and academically, 
and to prepare minors for transition to the community. 

Youth Leadership Academy serves low-risk minimum-security 
population of boys ages 14 to 18 years.  The comprehensive 
residential program will enhance competencies through remedial 
education, rehabilitative treatment programs, substance abuse programs, 
mental health services, and community outreach opportunities.
Joplin Youth Center provides residential treatment for boys, 
ages 13 to 17. It is located in a rustic setting, in the midst
