Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $84,945)
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.

d. Gender-specific programs (#13)
e. Mentoring (#21)
f. Rural Area juvenile programs (#26)
g. School programs (#27)
h. Substance abuse (#32)
