Prevention Program

Prevention Program

Our prevention program is for those youth referred to the 25th Judicial District Youth Services Agency for services due to at risk behavior. The prevention program assesses youth referred and coordinates community-based services that address the identified problem behaviors. Our program services youth that are referred from community-based agencies, parents, schools, and first-time misdemeanants arrested by local law enforcement officials to prevent community youth and low risk offenders entrance into the juvenile justice system.

The Choice is Yours

This program offers educational presentation to district school systems and public / private agencies to promote community-wide prevention services. For more information, visit Prevention Benefits.
