Cowlitz County Youth Services Center, or the Juvenile Department as it is more commonly known, is a part of the Superior Court System.

It provides legal intervention to youth under 18 years of age who are alleged to have committed or who have been found to have committed criminal offenses.

Services include Juvenile Court, individual and family counseling, community referral resources, and other services.

The Juvenile Department also handles youth 15 years of age and younger who are alleged to have committed boating, traffic and/or wildlife law violations through its Diversion Program.

Juvenile Court hearings are held in a courtroom at the Juvenile Center.

This Court has jurisdiction over cases involving the commission of criminal offenses by individuals under the age of 18, allegations of dependency (physical and/or sexual abuse, neglect or abandonment), at-risk youth, children in need of services, and truancies.
