Allegations of Misconduct Lead to YouthCorps Instructor Investigation

Allegations of inappropriate conduct have prompted the Lubbock Sheriff's Department to investigate a Lubbock YouthCorps instructor.

A 21-year-old female instructor is accused of inappropriate behavior with a 14-year-old male participant. No charges have been filed at this time.

YouthCorps is a non-profit organization that holds a two week summer camp designed to teach area teens leadership skills.

YouthCorps issued this statement about the ongoing investigation: "The YouthCorps staff and board of directors became aware of a situation over the weekend that involves potentially inappropriate behavior. Appropriate law enforcement officials were immediately notified and are investigating. YouthCorps is cooperating fully in the investigation. Since this involves an ongoing law enforcement investigation, it would be inappropriate, at this time, for YouthCorps to comment further."
