Common Misconceptions About Juvenile Offenders
By Chad Houser
- Criminal— Our interns are not criminals. They have responded to life circumstances of poverty, homelessness, despair and fatherlessness — consequences that have landed them in this situation. They don’t desire to commit crimes against society.
- Unintelligent— Many stereotype our interns as being dumb, or unintelligent. Yet, upon meeting an intern, one soon learns that they possess strong discernment and maintain a quick-witted nature. They are ahead of their time in many respects and thrive in the right environment.
- Not Hard Workers— Many people think that our interns are lazy and only have interests in picking up a paycheck. Yet, our interns work very hard. In addition, this is a first job for many involved and they are developing a very strong work ethic. They are interested in delivering a high level of customer service and enjoy building cross-functional relationships.
