About Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility:Oak Creek is one of nine Oregon Youth Authority Correctional Facilities.-- It holds the distinction as the sole facility that serves young women in Oregon.-- Located in the city of Albany within Linn County, Oak Creek serves approximately 50 female youth in the juvenile and adult justice systems.-- Like the seven facilities that serve males, Oak Creek houses youth who are adjudicated for criminal behavior in juvenile court, as well as youth serving sentences that originated in adult court from various jurisdictions.-- These youth have either been waived to adult court from juvenile court or by virtue of their age and severity of the criminal offense automatically remanded to adult court.

    Unique among the OYA facilities and unlike their male facility counterparts, is Oak Creek's capacity and challenge to address all aspects of a correctional facility.-- Stated another way, Oak Creek is the sole facility in OYA that engages in the functions of Intake, Long Term Care, Mental Health, Behavior Management, and Transition.-- While some OYA facilities may do most of the five functions listed above, no OYA facility aside from Oak Creek addresses all five areas as part of its ongoing practice.A Little About OYA:The Oregon Youth Authority is a national leader in the juvenile justice field, pioneering the implementation of a positive human development framework for its work with staff and youth, and using data to match the right youth with the right services. The mission of OYA is to protect the public and reduce crime by holding youth accountable and providing opportunities for reformation in safe environments.Please take a moment to watch this quick video about Oregon Youth Authority, our team and our culture--bit.ly/work4OYA.

                  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) requires correctional organizations to ensure that their employees are Tuberculosis (TB) free. All OYA employees are required to submit to a two-step TB test which is currently the requirement of the CDC to establish a TB free "base line." Rather than OYA conducting the test, employees may choose to work with their personal health care providers to provide the agency with medical documentation that demonstrates that they are TB free. If offered employment and you accept, OYA will offer you the TB testing, and if you refuse, OYA will require the necessary documentation from your personal health care provider as a condition of employment.
