The Strategies for Youth Model is Unique.
Strategies for Youth creates pathways for improving police-youth interactions by ...
... using training tools and outreach programming to move officers and youth from conflict to safer interactions.
Our Policing the Teen Brain training provides officers with tools and skills to work more effectively with youth.
We use a game call Juvenile Justice Jeopardy to educate youth about the potential consequences of their actions.
Our work centers around developmentally appropriate, trauma-informed, and racially equitable approaches for policing youth.
Through research reports, opinion pieces and speaking engagements, we promote using a developmentally appropriate approach to policing youth.
We link law enforcement with youth-serving community resources to create additional support for youth and families.
By building capacity and linking officers with resources...
...communities feel safer and police and youth interactions improve.
SFY's results are tangible: public safety improves, communities become more cohesive and there is greater equity in policing of youth.
