NAME OF COMPONENT: TEEN COURT

COMPONENT SUMMARY 1. Statement of the Problem: In concise terminology, describe how the program will address continuum need(s) in the county. The policies and practices that push students out of school in Richmond County and into the court system is referred to the school-to-prison pipeline which disproportionately impacts youth of color, who are over-represented in every entry point. Richmond County ranks as one of the poorest, mid-size counties in NC with a poverty rate for families doubling that of the national average. As a result of the extreme poverty, violence rates are some of the highest in the state with the rate higher than the national average.

Of NC's 100 counties, Richmond ranks in the top 40 in Juvenile Arrest Rates (per capita). By utilizing a court diversion process, we offer a phased immersion model to services helping participants divert their charges and avoid further penetration in the court system.

The delinquency rate per 1 ,000 children ages 6 to 17 for school based offenses in 2018 was 57 Oh higher than the rate for NC as a whole (42 ). This pool of students were also suspended for incidents as the schools administered 2,044 short term suspensions. The 2019 risk data shows 69 of youth have serious problems at school. NCDPS data reflects 71 of juveniles involved in juvenile services was approved for court. Additional needs assessment data for 2018-19 reflect rates higher than the state average in the following areas: youth needing additional mental health assessments and services (54 ), the data shows 27 of youth regularly associates with negative peers leading to peer pressure to commit crimes. About 115th of youth identified using substances need further assessments which is higher than counties in similar size and demographics. Over 40 of youth involved in juvenile services have parents with criminal convictions/records. For the past four years the JCPC has identified teen court as a need in their community. The Center has provided a part time program with very limited funding for the past five years. Changes in the juvenile age predicts an additional 44 juveniles ages 16-17 wilt need services based on their involvement in juvenile crime.

There several theories supporting the use of young people in the teen court process. One theory states youth will respond better to pro-social peers than to adult authority figures. This peer justice approach assumes that, similar to the way in which an association with delinquent peers is highly correlated with the onset of delinquent behavior, peer pressure from pro-social peers may push youth toward pro-social behavior. Teen courts are based on elements of restorative justice, including a concentration on the harm done to the person or the community, a focus on repairing the harm, and an emphasis on having an open dialog rather than on procedure and evidence.

This program is modeled after the research based model used by Robeson County Teen Court Youth Services that was developed through UNC Chapel Hill's School of Social Work through a grant funded by the US CDC.

2.
Target Population: Describe the target population, including age, and the steps taken to insure that the target population is sewed.

Teen Courts across the country are used for first time non-violent offenders to divert them from a formalized court process while still holding them accountable for their actions. The Richmond County Teen Court program serves first time offenders both male and female ages 10 171 or those under the jurisdiction of juvenile court, of all ethnic races whose behavior constitutes a violation of the law, local ordinances and status offenses.

NAME OF COMPONENT: TEEN COURT

COMPONENT SUMMARY NC DPS predicts an additional 44 youth offenders entering the juvenile justice system in Richmond County. While this number may seem low, one must consider that school based offenses made up 64 of juvenile complaints. Now the addition of 16 and 17 year old students will greatly impact the flow of complaints to juvenile services which clearEy justifies the need for a full time teen court program. Our goal is to insulate juvenile services from low risk first time non-violent students (offenders) from schools and law enforcement through the utilization of the state's first research based teen court model. From the increase in complaints, the NC Youth Violence Prevention Center is requesting additional funding to support a full time teen court model. The identified target population from juvenile services is drawn from youth consultations, intake diversions and direct diversion from juvenile court at the adjudication phase. Referrals come from law enforcement who can directly refer the target population for eligible offenses and divert the process of filing complaints against a first time offender. We anticipate that School Resource Officers complaints will increase. School Personnel such as Social Workers and Counselors for school based offenses are eligible to refer. Typical offenses referred to teen court are low level misdemeanor offenses such as simple affray, simple assault, communicating threats, shoplifting, larceny, trespassing and other non-violent offenses. Truancy has been identified as a need to utilize teen court. Program staff have made several attempts to develop stronger relationships with the schools to build this component. We feel confident with Raise the Age, this will motivate the new school administration to use our services. If we receive additional funding for a full time program we anticipate on integrating truancy into the disposition grid allowing staff to work with undisciplined youth and youth up to 16 years of age on compulsory school attendance law.

3.
Program Goal(s): Provide a brief statement to describe the overall purpose of the program.

The NC Youth Violence Prevention Center is the umbrella organization for programs in Robeson, Richmond and Columbus counties. The Center is an extension of the Robeson County Teen Court Youth Services (RCTCYS) organization spawned from the evidence based prevention model of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s Youth Violence Prevention models called Academic Centers for Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (ACE). The model uses evidence based models and promising effective approaches to programming that have a minimum of ten years of research behind each intervention that shows global macro impact in preventing youth violence in poor rural communities across the country, The mission of the Center is to continue the innovative community based and driven collaboration of research-based programming formerly provided by the North Carolina Academic Center for Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (NC-ACE). These interventions holistically support the needs of youth identified by the juvenile and district criminal justice systems in rural communities in North Carolina to avoid further penetration in the courts while assuming responsibility for their actions and teach them to make better decisions in the future through community service learning activities making a positive impact on the community. The Centerts Goals: To provide a seamless continuum of evidence based sejvices allowing up to 40 participants to be redirected from a formalized judicial process while still being accountable for their actions.

5. Elevated Risks and Needs: Describe how you will address one or more of the Elevated Risk and Needs of adjudicated juveniles listed in the local JCPC Request for Proposal. As determined by the elevated Risks data provided by the Richmond County JCPC for F/Y 18-19, 96 of the youth involved in juvenile services at the intake phase had a history of moderate or serious school behavior problems. These types of behavior are prime candidates for the teen court model as juveniles are redirected to the teen court service continuum learning better conflict management and stress reducers through integration with positive pro-social peers, staff support and restorative justice practices. Data also reflects an elevated percentage of adjudicated youth have moderate to serious school behavior resulting in shod and tong-term suspensions, expulsions and/or truancy. Having a diversion model schools can use to intervene with school-age youth prior to having a juvenile court history will significantly impact this elevated need and break the

cycle of the school-to-prison pipeline.

On average, 39 of youth had some use of illicit substances and/or had substance abuse issues that needed treatment. This is a slight increase from last year. With additional funding, we can add interpersonal skills to the teen coun service continuum by providing a life skills training component with proven effectiveness of reducing youth using substances (Botvin LST). For the stated period an average of 69 of the youth reported lacking pro-social peers and associated with delinquent or negative peers.

Upon the successful completion of the teen court ordered sanctions and both the pre/post assessments within the 120 day time frame the staff provides a summary to the Special Projects Director and the patticipant is terminated successfully as they completed all requirements of the program. A termination summary is sent to the referring agent and is asked to contact the office if further details are needed. If the youth completes 80 of their sanctions but has completed all jury duties and seminars the youth will receive a satisfactory completion. This may occur when a youth moves out of the county, state, or is placed in another county based on circumstances beyond their control. If the participant has been cooperative with their supervision but for some justified reason has not completed their sanctions in a 120 day time frame, with approval from the referral source the Teen Court Coordinator can request a 60 day extension.

Those participants that are non-compliant and have failed to complete at least 80 of their sanctions are terminated at the 120 day period with agency feedback as to the next steps for the participant. In most cases, the referral is sent back for formalized court processing. This will be considered an unsatisfactory termination.

Intervention/Treatment: Describe specifically what the component will do to redirect inappropriate youth behavior or how the component will address the identified needs of the youth and family. What interventions will typically be utilized in this component and how will parents/guardians be involved?

Teen Court, by definition, is not a program as much as it is a structured vehicle to divert first time non-violent offenders to a seamless continuum of services within the Center's framework. The intervention is the process of which the model intervenes at the intake and/or adjudication phase or intervenes at the initial stages of law enforcement or SROs decision to officially charge a juvenile. This is the in-direct intervention teen court provides to the juvenile justice system. The direct intervention begins at the intake phase where teen court staff conducts an intake to include research based assessments for both the juvenile and parent/guardian. Through this process teen court staff learn more about the juvenile and their family situation and is able to suggest recommendations to the teen court prosecutor and the defense attorney advocate. Staff provide training to volunteers of teen court with specific focus on their roles not only as courtroom role playing but also as pro-social mentors to the identified respondents. This is the second stage of intervention. The third stage begins with teen court staff developing an Individual Service Plan (ISP) that includes the identified risk and needs, family history including involvement with other agencies such as mental health or DSS and the projected goals of the individual juvenile which will align with the court sanctions ordered by the teen court jury. By using the ISPs staff will be able to use social skill development and interpersonal skill development workshops and seminars to address the needs identified in the risk and needs assessment conducted by either NC DPS court staff or our agency.

Through the use of restorative justice methods such as peer-to-peer mediation, community service restitution through Project Focus the respondent develops a sense of belonging and commitment to his or her community. By integrating respondents with pro-social peers using the jury deliberation activity the respondent begins to understand the judicial process, develops additional positive peer relationships therefore providing additional protective factors that will deter from further delinquency.

Best Practice Model: Describe what model or evidence-supported/best practice the program is based upon.

The NC Center for Youth Violence Prevention continues the innovative community based and driven collaboration of research-based programming formerly implemented by the NC Academic Center for Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (NC-ACE) that holistically support the needs of the youth identified by the juvenile and district criminal justice system to avoid further penetration in the courts, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified Academic Centers of Excellence (ACE) as a research based model providing significant impact to youth and families involved in the work of ACE models. Through the Center (formerly NC-ACE) model the integration of the interventions, direct services staff, residency and select administration evolved into the NC Youth Violence Prevention Center model July 1, 2014 and upon successful future funding awards to continue to support the efforts. Teen Court is based on the philosophy of restorative justice which has been identified as a evidence based approach that can be used to meet the needs of offenders and their victims. The approach is one that can be said to be empowering as it sees the offender as someone who is in need of assistance and support in addition to the victim(s) and community. Through teen court this can be accomplished by providing the offender the opportunity to repair harm done by participating in reparation activities for the victim(s).

Tagged Interests: funding, legal, services, program, youth, and court

Although there is support that restorative justice practices incorporated into the interventions is effective in the

reduction of recidivism, a gap in the literature exists that explains how this is effective. By diversion, juvenile offenders have found the experience to be less threatening and are more likely to follow through with their assigned sanctions in comparison to their counterparts in a more formalized courtroom process. Participation in the teen court model

provides an opportunity for youth to increase their protective factors thereby reducing their identified risk factors. Positive youth development practice emphasizes the need to invest in youth by providing opportunities for them to build strengths and assets that will enable them to be more likely to cope with stress in their day-to-day life.
