Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $121,617)

Guam's Department of Youth Affairs (DYA) will continue to use its JABG program funds to support the following purpose areas: (8) drug court programs and (12) programs to conduct risk and needs assessment. More specifically, the drug court program through the Judiciary of Guam will continue to support the Juvenile Drug Court Tracker Program and provide drug testing that includes strict monitoring to reduce substance abuse among youth on probation. The risk and needs assessment program will provide an effective system of assessment for youth in the Youth Correctional Facility (YCF) and the Cottage Homes (CH), as well as clients of the Jumpstart and Aftercare programs. Identifying targeted services and applying immediate sanctions that will be carefully matched to each youth's level of risk and service needs will reduce recidivism into the family court system. DYA will manage all of the activities and measure progress through daily admissions and monthly statistical reports. NCA/NCF
