Prosecution Alternatives for Youth (PAY) is the main Seminole County juvenile diversionary program. PAY is a 90-day program that is an alternative to formal court proceedings for delinquent juveniles. PAY promotes accountability to the victim and the community, through activities such as restitution and community service work and provides opportunities for personal improvement, such as classes, counseling, and work skills.

Operation Right Track

Operation Right Track is a two-day initiative designed to offer parents an avenue of intervention for youth between the ages of 10 to 17. The program involves a physically and mentally challenging curriculum designed to help them develop character, make sound decisions, and effectively solve problems. Parents are also required to take the program by attending a 1 ½ hour parenting session with a senior drill instructor on day one, and then participating with their child on the second day in a series of exercises designed to break down communication barriers.
