Diversion of Youth from the Juvenile Justice System: Project Orientation Training Manual.
The training manual of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is intended for personnel involved with Youth Service Bureaus and other diversion projects which provide direct services to delinquent or predelinquent youths with the hope of preventing initial or further involvement with the juvenile justice system. Section I, "Orientation and Overview," describes objectives of the OJJDP and local project organization and objectives. Section II is on the diversion orientation curriculum and describes five modules: rationales for diversion, guidelines for diversion, components of diversion projects, evaluation of diversion projects, and the local diversion project. Each module outlines concepts and training tasks and suggests available training resources. Section III is on designing an orientation program and includes subsections on such aspects as assessment of needs, management style and training, multiple media, preparation of training agendas, assessment and evaluation activities, and a sample 2 day diversion orientation agenda.
