The National Partnership for Juvenile Services (NPJS) will provide training and technical assistance to improve compliance with the Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders (DSO) core requirement. During this project, NPJS will gather examples of diversion success stories from jurisdictions across the United States. These may include legislative activity, programs, tools, and other practices that successfully divert youth status offenders from the juvenile justice system. The identified programs, policies, and practices will be formatted into a publication (toolkit), allowing other jurisdictions seeking to improve upon local efforts to select the approach that fits their needs.
