ReDirect

ReDirect is a group intervention program designed to reset the path for youth who have been arrested for minor offenses. It is a collaborative program with the goal of empowering youth with the skills necessary to make better life decisions and redirect their lives for a better future.  This program includes classroom sessions along with community service projects. Youth remain in the program until they complete their required community service hours. The ReDirect Program is available to youth referred due to being on a Station Adjustment, from a Peer Jury, or as an alternative to suspension. 

Throughout the program, youth participate in both psychoeducational group sessions and perform various community service activities.  The theme of the psychoeducational sessions coincides with reasons why youth have been referred to the program.  The program employs the restorative justice model.

Group Topics Include:

  • Empathy

  • Respectful

  • Communication

  • Anger Control and Triggers

  • Social Media

  • Beliefs, Values, and Morals

  • Accountability

  • Substance Use

  • Peer Pressure

  • Problem Solving
