Juvenile Justice Center

The WWJJC and the Pathways Back Program is a partnership between Walla Walla County, Walla Walla Public Schools and ESD 123 to provide a short-term transitional educational setting for middle and high school youth. Operated by a certified teacher, ESD 123 provides supervision of the educational program at this seven day a week, twenty-four hour a day detention center for court sentenced youth.

To be eligible for admission into Pathways Back, youth must have been (a) suspended or expelled from school; or (b) recently released from the WWCJJC detention facility; or local treatment facility; or (c) a chronic truant from school, and ordered by the court to attend school because of the at-risk youth petition process. A certified teacher works with small groups of students to build social and academic skills and to assist students in developing habits that will enable them to be successful in future educational placements.
