For Law Enforcement
SFY’s signature program for police, Policing the Teen Brain™, trains law enforcement officers in strategies for interacting effectively with youth. It orients them to view arrests as the least effective intervention for low-level offending, one that should be used as a last resort.
Juvenile Justice Jeopardy™ is the cornerstone of our youth education programming. Agencies, schools and community organizations use this interactive game tool to teach youth how to navigate interactions with peers and police and be aware of the consequences of arrest and court involvement.
The success of Policing the Teen Brain™ has led us to develop a version of the program for parents, called Parenting the Teen Brain™. This training teaches parents how to better understand and communicate with their teens.
