30. Building Unique Youth Alternatives (BUYA)

This boot camp program functions in weekends somewhere in California. Now in California they had their share of boot camp scandals. In the prison system they experimented with that around year 2000 and found that it didn’t work.

Now private people has set up a number of boot camps for teenagers with little supervision. One of them is BUYA. They were mentioned in relationship with the Parsedena boot camp scandal.

Hopefully the politicians in California will create some legislation so teenagers don’t end up dead in these programs like it happened in other states.
