Juvenile Diversion

An alternative to juvenile court

The Juvenile Diversion Program offers services through program partnerships with police departments and youth-oriented organizations. The mission of the Juvenile Diversion Program is to help youth who have run into trouble with the law, or may be at risk to do so, by offering a positive alternative to formal court proceedings for first-time juvenile offenders who have committed a misdemeanor or status offense. Youth participate in Scouting activities through group interactions which are intended to improve their understanding and perception of the legal system and law enforcement, increase their self-esteem, teach them better methods of communication, and improve their decision-making skills.
