Juvenile Counselor II (Former Employee) –  Newport News, VAApril 7, 2016
I would like to return to the Juvenile Detention Center, I know where I made my mistakes and now have the knowledge and inclination to correct them. We as a Nation can not afford to let any of our children fall through the cracks. I would take a cut in pay to go back and would promise not to miss a day for five (5) years.
Pros
Training and personel
Cons
Left too soon

Pros
