Sponsored Programs

Livingston County Youth Court


Hillside Family of Agencies sponsors this voluntary alternative to the traditional Juvenile Justice System for young people who are first-time offenders of a nonviolent crime or offense. The offender has already admitted guilt and agrees to have his case heard by a group of peers between the ages of 14 to 19. The goals are to intervene in early anti-social, delinquent, or criminal behaviors, teach new behaviors and skills, and hold the offenders accountable by offering opportunities to make amends, and to educate them on the impact of their actions on themselves, their victims, and the community. The court is made up of youth from school districts around the county who volunteer their time to be trained and take the roles of the court process.

Family Life Workshops

Cornell Cooperative Extension Livingston County, through partnerships with Mt. Morris, Livonia, and Dansville school districts, will offer free parenting education to all residents in these communities.  Our workshops help participants gain parenting skills in the areas of understanding children, how to help children learn and thrive, effective discipline and personal stress management. As parents learn how to better understand, guide, nurture, and motivate their children, they become more effective. Parents of children of any age can benefit from these programs.
