If working with PRCS is not an option, a non-profit organization is used as a substitute. Non-profit organizations include animal shelters, churches, thrift stores, schools, and a variety of other organizations. The youth must verify that the community service site is approved before beginning the hours.
The youth is expected to arrive on time at the assigned work site and display a willingness to help in order to complete assigned community service hours. A time-sheet is kept and when the youth has completed all work the JCSU is advised that the youth has complied with the required community service.
