Diversion is a program that provides an alternative to going to Court for juveniles charged with status or first-time misdemeanor offenses. Staff work with youth on a voluntary basis to complete a behavior contract designed to hold both youth and parents accountable for their actions, prevent further offenses, link the family with needed services and attend counseling if appropriate.
