1. Whenever an informal adjustment is made under the provisions of section 211.081, the juvenile court may allow the child:

(1) To make restitution or reparation for the damage or loss caused by his offense. Any restitution or reparation shall be reasonable in view of the child's ability to make payment or perform the reparation. The court may require the clerk of the circuit court to act as receiving and disbursing agent for any payment agreed upon;

(2) To complete a term of community service under the supervision of the court or an organization selected by the court.

2. Every person, organization, and agency, and each employee thereof, who supervises a child under the provisions of this section, or who benefits from any services performed under this section as a result of an informal adjustment, shall be immune from any suit by the child performing services under this section, or any person deriving a cause of action from such child, if such cause of action arises from the supervision of the child's performance of services under this section and if such cause of action does not arise from an intentional tort or any wanton, willful, or malicious conduct. A child performing services under this section shall not be deemed an employee within the meaning of the provisions of chapter 287, nor shall the services of such child be deemed employment within the meaning of the provisions of chapter 288.
