Community Work Service is a Court-ordered consequence for criminal activity that repairs harm done to the community. Juveniles must find and make arrangements with non-profit community organizations, schools or churches to complete the court-ordered hours or work. In some cases, hours worked earn credit towards restitution that juvenile offenders owe to victims. Victims are then compensated out of a restitution fund.
