Mission Statement

The Long Creek Youth Development Center is committed to creating and providing opportunity for success through personal growth in a safe and secure environment.


Long Creek Youth Development Center has a long history of helping Maine's youth and continues to redefine many of its program functions to enable a multi-disciplined team approach in working with those committed and held within the facility. 

Long Creek Youth Development Center functions as a total educational and rehabilitative resource within the state-wide correctional setting. The Center provides care, custody and security for its residents, evaluations/diagnostic services, education, physical education and recreation through the A.R. Gould School, volunteer services, social services, religious services, as well as medical services.

Whether you are coming as a visitor, volunteer or to find a career, you will find that Long Creek, which achieved ACA accrediation in May of 2006, is one of the top facilities of its kind.
