Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM)

This learning program is a multi-agency, cross-system practice model that aims to reduce additional youth involvement in the Juvenile Justice system in a manner consistent with the needs and best interests of both the youth and community. Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM) was developed by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University. In New York City, it is a joint initiative of ACS, the Department of Probation (DOP) and Family Court. The model is currently being piloted in the Bronx and Brooklyn but will soon be incorporated as a best practice for crossover youth citywide.
