Chalkville Campus is located in northeast Jefferson County. On the immediate grounds there are five cottages, a central dining room, academic school building, Chapel, administration building, and security/recreation building. The facility has a capacity for 92 girls.
Alabama Youth Services-Chalkville Campus is a juvenile training facility founded in 1909 by the Protestant Women of Birmingham. The facility was originally known as “The Rescue Home” and later known as “The State Training School for Girls". It became a state facility in 1911 when the Alabama Legislature made the first appropriation to the School. The School was housed in several locations in Birmingham, but it has been at the present location in Chalkville since 1937.
The facility is supported through an annual appropriation by the State Legislature and is under the direct administration of the State Department of Youth Services. In January 2004 the Chemical Addiction Program (CAP) was developed to provide intense drug and alcohol treatment. The girls range in ages from 12-18 and are committed to the Department of Youth Services and adjudicated as delinquent by the Juvenile Courts of Alabama.
The Chalkville campus provides a wide range of services which include but are not limited to group counseling, social skills training, assertiveness training, drug and alcohol education, value clarification, sex education, medical services, remediation of basic skills (math, reading, language arts), GED preparation, physical education, and campus service projects.
