Across Oregon, 128 youth on OYA parole or probation celebrated their graduations in June, an important step in their journey to becoming crime-free and productive members of their communities.
Of the graduates, 77 earned their high school diplomas, and 51 earned GEDs. Congratulations to these hard-working members of the Class of 2018!
Thanks to everyone who provided them with the guidance and support they needed along the way, including their families, residential providers, OYA foster parents, OYA facility staff, and their juvenile parole and probation officers (who proudly cheered them on at their graduations and also sent us the photos included below).
