Abstract: Concern about juvenile delinquency is widespread throughout the United States. Alienated youth, whether they have already been adjudicated as delinquent or whether they are troubled and troublesome children who have not yet been in contact with the courts, pose a challenge for the communities in which they live. The challenge is twofold: to deal effectively with delinquent youth to reduce the likelihood of future offenses and to prevent or minimize the occurrence of delinquent behaviors by youth who have not already committed such acts. This paper describes a project which assisted personnel from school systems acid juvenile courts in Georgia to work together to achieve these goals.
