York County Youth Detention Center Partnership

York County Sheriff's Office works in cooperation with York County Youth Detention Center (YDC) to provide educational programming for youth who are in the shelter. The programs teach the youth communication skills, anger management, conflict resolution skills, laws, victim awareness/impact, citizenship, and values.

York County Sheriff's Office also partners with YDC to take approved shelter residents on outings to complete community service and educational field trips. Below are photos of youth participating in outings. To request graffiti removal or have a presentation on our graffiti removal services contact YDC at 840-7570 or the Sheriff's Office at 771-9987
