Program Information


Pueblo Youth Services Center (PYSC) is a secure 28-bed detention facility operated by the Colorado Division of Youth Corrections (DYC).  The facility is located in the Southern region of the state and provides services to youth located in six Colorado Judicial Districts: the 3rd, 10th, 11th, 12th, 15th, and the 16th Judicial Districts.  These Judicial Districts encompass 20 counties within the South and Southeastern portion of the state.

Male and female youth between the ages of 10 through 17 are detained at Pueblo Youth Services Center for one of two reasons: secure placement pending a court hearing, or to serve a detention sentence of up to 45 days. Detention youth participate in cognitive behavioral programming designed to teach positive traits, anger management, improved decision making, empathy and other social related skills. For youth in detention at PYSC, a risk and needs assessment is provided to the court to assist in the identification of possible services available to facilitate a successful transition back into the community.

Pueblo City Schools provides licensed teaching staff for the comprehensive school program. Youth can generate the credits necessary to receive a diploma or receive a GED (General Equivalency Diploma) while at PYSC.
