Okaloosa Youth Academy: Our Mission

The mission of Okaloosa Youth Academy is to increase public safety by reducing juvenile delinquency in Florida through effective prevention, intervention and treatment services that strengthen families and turn around the lives of troubled youth.

The commitment to the Balanced Approach to Restorative Justice (BARJ) philosophy and treatment approach of Okaloosa Youth Academy identifies the harm created by youth to the crime victims and communities and focuses on teaching empathy and repairing harm.

The BARJ philosophy encompasses decreasing youths' threat to public safety, holding youth accountable for the harm caused by their crimes, and enabling youth to make amends to their victims and the community.

The goals of Okaloosa Youth Academy are to help youth develop competencies that are valued by the community through therapeutic and educational programming in a secure, structured environment and to promote youths’ successful transition into the community without re-offending.

These goals can be accomplished by providing evidenced-based delinquency programming that increases youths’ skill in academics, employability, reasoning, decision making, impulse control, conflict resolution, leadership, and interpersonal problem-solving.
