Abstract: The Title V Program uses a prevention model focused on risk and protective factors known to lead to juvenile delinquency. The program has provided training for leaders and prevention specialists in hundreds of local communities during 1994 and 1995 and has distributed program funds for their delinquency prevention plans. Grant funds have supported a wide variety of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention activities for children of all ages. These programs include parent skills training and family counseling, outreach and crisis intervention, crime prevention, court intake services and arbitration/mediation, mentoring programs and peer counseling, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, employment training, truancy prevention, child abuse and neglect prevention programs, and community mobilization. Results have included new community coalitions to improve planning, attraction of prevention resources from other sources, completion of risk assessments, improved interagency coordination, and program evaluations. Figures and appended list of risk factors, discussion of the link between the juvenile justice and child welfare systems, and 68 references
