Synopsis: In 2004/2005, Hillsborough County led the state of Florida in school-based referrals to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Research suggests that diverting young offenders and at-risk youth from the juvenile justice system and into community-based programming will lead to reductions in further delinquent behavior. This study investigates a community-service based diversion program aimed at first time and nonserious school-based offenders. Results from interviews with key stakeholders and analysis of case record data will be presented.
