This program intends to reduce risks and enhance protective factors to prevent at-risk youth from entering the juvenile justice systems and to intervene with first-time and non-serious offenders to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.
Connecticut will identify high need local communities to be eligible for Title V funding. Previous activities targeted aggressive behaviors (fights, internet bullying, other disciplinary infractions) as youth leaders facilitated mediation sessions for middle school aged students. The program framework focused on universal and/or primary intervention which included summer camps, gender specific groups, extra curricular activities, and dissemination of family resource packets.
