OJJDP's Tribal Youth Initiatives
(NCJ 193763) May 2003
Bulletin, 8 page(s)
McKinney, K.
Describes the efforts of OJJDP to assist tribal communities in addressing risk factors for delinquency. The Bulletin highlights five program areas: OJJDP's Tribal Youth Program (TYP), which provides funds directly to tribal communities to develop programs that prevent and control delinquency, reduce violent crime, and improve tribal juvenile justice systems; the TYP Mental Health Project, which supports efforts to diagnose and treat at-risk tribal youth; the Comprehensive Indian Resources Community and Law Enforcement (CIRCLE) Project, which helps tribal communities develop comprehensive programs to address crime, violence, and substance abuse; training and technical assistance to TYP grantees and other tribal communities; and research and evaluation activities that focus on juvenile justice problems in tribal communities.
