JJC Residents Take Flight

Eighteen residents from the Juvenile Justice Commission’s Green Residential Community Home will conclude their participation in the Young Eagles program with a ride in a small plane. Chapter 501 of the Experienced Aircraft Association (EAA) spearheads the program which introduces young people to the wonders of flight and the various related career options. Licensed pilots, who volunteer their time, their planes and operating expenses, conduct the flights in FAA registered aircrafts. Students receive instruction in aviation and safety as part of the project.

The JJC operates 16 residential community centers throughout the state which typically deal with lower level offenders or those juveniles preparing to return to their communities at the completion of their sentences. Juveniles are supervised by trained staff at all times. Juveniles who commit more violent crimes are sentenced to JJC secure institutions and are not eligible to participate in this program.

Greenwood Lake Airport, West Milford

Saturday, October 22
9:00 a.m.

New Jersey State law protects juveniles’ confidentiality. Consent will be obtained to allow certain juveniles participating in the event to speak with members of the press. Photographing and interviewing all other juveniles is strictly prohibited.

Please see Superintendent Jim Doone upon arrival for instructions.
