Juvenile Delinquency

Now that your team has identified risk factors and explored the relationship between the factors of delinquency, the team needs to now focus on prevention.

Discuss, as a team, possible prevention programs that would be a good fit for the selected risk factors before deciding on a programmatic approach.

Create a brochure that describes the program to the local community and potential consumers.

Include the following in your brochure:

  • A mission statement – What is the goal of your program?
  • A summary of the risk factors you are addressing and their potential link to juvenile delinquency (feel free to use information from your Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation, along with any relevant feedback from the facilitator)
  • Specific information about your program and why you think it reduces the risk of juvenile delinquency
