Communities in Schools of Philadelphia - Teen CourtThe Philadelphia Teen Court program is a sentencing court run by teens for teens. The program’s mission is to provide a service-learning forum that encourages youth to develop their leadership skills, to follow the rules of law and to hold their peers accountable for their anti-social behavior. High school students who have violated a Level 1 offense are held accountable by a jury of their peers. The offender’s peers are placed in the roles of jury member, prosecuting and defense attorney, clerk bailiff, and judge. The Teen Court students become role models and peer leaders in their school and community. Program Goals: prevent youth who commit minor school offenses from becoming involved in more serious offenses, hold youth accountable for their actions through positive approaches to reform (i.e. local community service, restitution, letters of apology, mediation, and other alternative measures), reduce the number of suspensions and school truancy, and educate youth about the judicial process, the court system, and their role in a democratic society.PhiladelphiaCommunities in Schools Philadelphia - Philadelphia; Art MuseumCommunities in Schools of Philadelphia

Communities That Care (CTC)Communities That Care (CTC) is a proven approach to preventing youth violence, delinquency and drug use, and promoting positive youth development and strong families. The strength of the CTC model lies in its foundation in decades of research on the underlying causes of youth crime. This research has identified a number of specific risk factors that are associated with youth problem behaviors. CTC utilizes a comprehensive process that brings members of the community together to evaluate community-wide data, identify and prioritize risk factors, and implement evidence-based (i.e. proven-effective) programs aimed at reducing risk factors and ultimately improving youth outcomes. The benefits of the CTC model for community prevention planning include: • Greater community collaboration and ownership of prevention activities. • More strategic allocation of scarce prevention resources. • Increased focus on quality of program delivery, and on outcomes and accountability. • Reduced duplication and fragmentation of resources and services. • Reduced interagency competition. • Improve sustainability of programs and strategies.FultonFulton County Family Partnership, Inc.Fulton County Family Partnership, Inc.

Juvenile Justice Services, Family-Child ResourcesFamily-Focused Intensive Aftercare Program is a customized approach for the juvenile probationer and his/her family. The program addresses the very significant problem that juvenile probationers in residential facilities often considerably improve their behavior while in the structure of the facility, only to lose their gains once they return to an environment that does not have such a structure. The goal of the Family-Focused Intensive Aftercare Program is to successfully reintegrate the probationer into the community, utilizing the program to bridge the structure and behaviors gained in residential placement to the probationer's family, community, and daily life. Social Skills/Anger Reduction Group assists youths who are first-time offenders to develop the skills necessary to control their anger. Participants attend 10 weekly group sessions, which focus on learning the anger cycle, identifying the stages of anger, and practicing the techniques of appropriate anger management.YorkFamily-Child ResourcesFamily-Child Resources
