Stoplifters Education Program

Designed for Youth Arrested for Shoplifting

STOPLIFTERS is an educational program for shoplifting youth held monthly at Vertical Dreams indoor rock climbing facility in downtown Nashua.

This track was added to the Court Diversion Program to address the specific needs of shoplifting youth. Once a youth has been arrested for the crime of shoplifting, the local police department refers the youth and their family to The Youth Council's Court Diversion Program, with the stipulation that the youth also attend Stoplifters.

Goals include:

  • Educating youth about the law
  • Helping youth to improve decision-making skills
  • Teaching youth about healthy risk-taking activities through rock climbing
  • Diverting shoplifting juveniles from the Court system.
