Juvenile Delinquency Prevention: A Compendium of 36 Program Models. Reports of the National Juvenile Justice Assessment Centers.
Wall, John S.; And Others
This monograph presents 36 juvenile delinquency prevention program models, which describe a range of approaches for preventing delinquency before young people become involved with the law. The strategies of each program model are delineated as well as the rationale, objectives, target population, implementation requirements and implementing agency, budget, and effectiveness reported by program evaluators. A program matrix is provided as a reference for readers interested in particular types of programs. Although no proven technology exists for effective delinquent prevention, these programs can be used as models in cause-focused delinquency prevention planning. (JAC)
