Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Cross over youth recidivism and abuse prevention program
by Dean, Christy M., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 70; 1499148
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant that identifies the need for services to juvenile offenders in Los Angeles. Literature reveals youth who experience trauma, neglect, and exposure to violence are at higher risk for becoming repeat offenders. The goal of the Cross-Over Youth Recidivism and Abuse Prevention program is to utilize LA County Probation Department Day Reporting Center locations to provide a mentoring service to youth that are at highest risk for recommitting crimes. The objective was to link successful graduates of the program to mentor and train newer offenders by enabling them to build support systems, learn life skills, and abuse prevention techniques. The result will be lower rates of crime and child abuse. The identified funding source for the program is the California Wellness Center. Actual submission and or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
