Nominate a Program
OJJDP continually seeks new programs to include in the
Model Programs Guide (MPG). We are pleased to review research findings on potential
new programs. The following information
below provides information on the nomination process, including: program eligibility,
minimum evidence requirements, the review process, and submission instructions.
All programs must focus on a youth population. A youth
population is defined as anyone under the age of 18. A program is eligible if it
serves both youth and adults.
Programs must also focus on youth who exhibit or are at-risk for one or more of the following problems:

any point along the continuum of youth services -- from prevention and intervention through residential care to reentry.

The entire review process typically takes several months.
