Since 1975, Eastern Suffolk BOCES
has been instrumental in the development and implementation of innovative educational
and transitional programs for persons incarcerated in Suffolk County
Correctional Facilities at Riverhead and Yaphank (including the DWI Alternative
Facility) and for at-risk youth attending one of our alternative programs.
The Incarcerated Youth Program provides educational services to minors in the Riverhead and Yaphank Correctional Facilities, for a minimum of 15 hours per week, to prepare students for TASC™ or Regents testing. Also available are Tutoring, Remedial Education, ENL, and Career and Technical Education, and Career/Life Planning and anger management.
The program also provides Adult Literacy education for individuals 21 years of age and older who do not have a high school diploma and are Limited English Proficient (LEP). This includes Adult Secondary Education (ASE), TASC™ preparation, ENL and Career/Life Planning.
