Annotation: This bulletin pays tribute to the staff of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice's (CJCJ's) Detention Diversion Advocacy Project (DDAP), their work and accomplishments, and the distinctive role they play in the future of community-based juvenile justice service.
Abstract: For the past 13 years, the DDAP has been setting the standards for juvenile detention alternatives in San Francisco. After its start, DDAP quickly became a national model and was replicated in five cities around the country. In the next year, the program will be expanding into the area of juvenile reentry by providing comprehensive services for youth returning to their communities from residential placement. The bulletin profiles San Francisco DDAP Program Director Kimo Uila, including his background before coming to the DDAP and what he has accomplished with the DDAP. After having proved himself as an effective DDAP case manager--facilitating interactions and communication among interested players in a youth's life--he now trains his staff in the many technical practices and methods promoted by researchers. Trained as case managers, the five staff members are capable of meeting the various challenges presented by the difficult situations of youth under DDAP supervision. The bulletin also describes the work of CJCJ's executive director Dan Macallair in his service on California's Little Hoover Advisory Committee, as it develops suggestions for a more "holistic approach" to improve California corrections. Sentencing, parole, and prison reform will all be considered under its current study. In 2007, CJCJ will collaborate with local juvenile justice stakeholders to develop a Plan for Effective Juvenile Justice. CJCJ will propose a reformed organizational structure for service delivery to youth and a strategic plan for capacity-building among juvenile justice service providers.
