Annotation: This document describes the major program components of Project New Pride, a community-based comprehensive program of integrated services for serious, multiple-delinquent offenders, ages 14 to 17; the program is located in Denver, Colo.
Abstract: The project focuses specifically on adjudicated youth residing in jurisdictions with high levels of serious juvenile crime. These youth are under court supervision for a serious offense, have records of at least two prior convictions for serious misdemeanors and/or felonies, and would otherwise be confined in correctional institutions or placed on probation. The project's major objectives are increased school achievement among clients, reduction in the incarceration of youth adjudicated for criminal offenses, reduction of arrests, and institutionalization of comprehensive and integrated community-based treatment services for serious juvenile offenders. Project counselors are expected to have daily contact with clients and their families, to coordinate the delivery of services to their clients, and to have caseloads that do not exceed 20 clients. Additional program components include diagnostic assessment, alternative education, school reintegration and maintenance, and job preparation and placement. The project also uses volunteers and a management information system to maintain quality control, monitor service delivery, and improve planning. In addition, the project emphasizes the integration of diagnostic information, staffing, and individualized integrated service planning. Each client receives 6 months of intensive service and 6 months of followup services. Thus, the project is oriented toward moving clients back into the community and providing these clients with support and with increased competencies. Forty-two figures are provided.
