Gulf Coast Youth Academy: Education and Community


The youth attend a school program provided by the Okaloosa County School District. Youth have the opportunity to participate in either a carpentry or masonry vocational program as part of their educational experience and if eligible can even earn a GED or accredited High School Diploma, as GCYA is a certified GED testing center.

Community Service
Community Service projects are an integral part of the Gulf Coast Youth Academy program. Youth who pass our Risk Assessment criteria to participate in community activities are encouraged to complete their community service court sanctions during their stay.

Opportunities for community service have included: painting and landscaping at local churches and schools, preparing the baseball fields for the Crestview Little League and collecting trash for the Adopt-A-Highway program. Gulf Coast Youth Academy is a program that provides adjudicated youth with the opportunity of a second chance.

As part of a team devoted to excellence and success, youth leave with the skills and knowledge to become a productive and responsible citizen in the community.
