Street Law is training juvenile justice educators and school resource officers in the state of Maryland to implement its Legal Life Skills and Police & Teens programs. This project is designed to advance the understanding of how school- and community-based program delivery approaches may reduce delinquent behavior, which in turn can reduce violence and offending among youth and promote positive outcomes for youth and their communities.
