Elk City Youth and Family Programs
In August of 1996, Elk City Youth and Family Programs was created by the City of Elk City in response to the escalating problem of juvenile crime and juvenile gang activity. Over the years, through the development and implementation of a multitude of prevention, intervention and diversionary programs, juvenile delinquency has been reduced dramatically. Partnerships with the Elk City Public Schools, the Juvenile Court, Law Enforcement and the Office of Juvenile Affairs have contributed to the significant decline in juvenile crime in Elk City.
Programs available through ECYFP, include Teen Court, First Offender Program, R.I.S.E. Classes for the Youth Employment Training Program and on the job training through the lunchtime café, "Buck's Lodge".
