Description
The Youth Diversion Program is a community based program that consist of seven (7) sites throughout DeKalb County. The sites consist of volunteer panels. The panel members actually interview first-time, misdemeanor offenders and their parents and determine consequences for the offender, based on the offense and the information obtained from the interview. The panels meet monthly. Once consequences have been assigned, a member from the panel elects to mentor with the child for up to ninety(90) days. Based upon the recommendation of the panel members, youth who successfully complete the program have an opportunity to have their charge dismissed by the court.
