Questions about working in a juvenile delinquent center? Topic: Work requirements
June 21, 2019 / By Jocelin
Question: I talked to two different college advisors and they both said different things. I want to be a counselor or work to modify the behaviors of teenagers in juvi, and I just want to know the process and requirements for becoming one. What is the best field to major in? What is the highest degree needed? What are all the requirements? Any extra info or advice would be appreciated. Thanks :)

You would want to go into Psychology. It would be a lot of work, but if you want to be a juvenile counselor, then that's the way to go. It may sound difficult to do, but getting a Master's in Psychology would get you pretty much anywhere you want to work -- schools, clinics, wherever. A Bachelor's will get you to some places, but not many. I don't know about all the requirements, but that's as much as I know. I hope this helps.

I would think that a bachelor's in Social Work would be appropriate. Courses in criminal justice would also help. A master's in Social Work would be probably pay better.

Completely unethical. You are an agent for the company and therefore obligated to put the company's welfare ahead of your own (or others you know). If this action is found out, you could be fired. Now having said that, I personally think it WOULD be ethical to ask the relative to make payment arrangements to the company BEFORE sending his account to a collection agency. Perhaps if the agreement is in place beforehand, you could preclude the relative's account from being sent out for collection. I don't think this would be unethical since your company could still get the full amount due (albeit over time). By turning it over to a collection agency, your company would only get a portion of the total amount owed. So was this a homework question, or an actual event?

I appreciate your loyalty to your relative, but I think I'd discuss the situation with my boss if I were you. It's a relatively small amount, and perhaps the company would be willing to work out a payment plan with your relative as a favor to you. Not including it with the rest of the delinquent accounts is unethical because you owe a fiduciary duty to your company. You could get fired if they find out.
