June 2015 FACILITATOR OF THE MONTH
Names: Zane Schmeeckle - Springfield Hybrid Martial Arts
Group Facilitated: Mixed Martial Arts
Group Description: The Mixed Marital Arts (MMA) group teaches youth the importance of discipline and staying healthy. Rather than focusing on actual fighting skills, the group focuses on teaching youth the discipline required to perfect a technique. Lessons from this group can be applied in many other aspects of life by focusing on self-discipline and attention to detail. This group is facilitated by former ERC Youth Specialist Zane Schmeeckle of Springfield Hybrid Martial Arts in Springfield, MO.

About ERC Presentation:
The mission of the Greene County Juvenile Office-Evening Reporting Center (ERC) is to provide a community based alternative to secure detention for at-risk youth. This short term intensive supervision treatment program, with the help of community volunteers, will provide facilitated education and therapeutic programs in a structured environment, while ensuring the safety of the community and the juvenile.
The ERC is a program designed to assist participants to remain in the community and influence their lives in a positive way. Participants should consider placement in the ERC as a privilege and an opportunity to make positive changes in their behavior.
Placement in the ERC is an opportunity. With the help of the community facilitators, juveniles placed in the ERC program are allowed the chance to learn and develop social skills in a structured environment, covering such topics as Job Skills, Decision Making, Personal Health, and others.
Eligible youth will be:
- Post-filing/pre-adjudication or post adjudication status/ or motion to modify.
- Referred by a Deputy Juvenile Officer, Probation Officer, or the Court, to include Juvenile Drug Court
- Between the ages of 12 and fall under jurisdiction of the court.
- Accepted on a space-available basis. Maximum capacity for the Evening Reporting Center is 12 youth.
- Participating in the program for a period not to exceed 20 program days (actual days of operation)
