The National Partnership for Juvenile Services is once again sponsoring the “Bob Rader Line Staff Worker of the Year” Award and the “Bob Rader Detention Services Worker of the Year” Award.
There are in fact distinct differences in the awards by definition. However, each is equally as important and allows each facility to select one individual from each category if they so choose.
- Juvenile Line Staff Worker – By definition, an individual responsible for the direct supervision of youth in an in-custody environment.
- Juvenile Detention Services Worker – By definition, an individual working in any form of detention services (i.e., secure, home detention) at any level of the organizational structure (i.e. supervisory, social services, food services, medical services, maintenance services).
Nominations are due by September 30 each year. Please see form for further details.
