Lionheart’s Power Source Program for Youth at Risk included in DOJ Site

21/08/19 0

After 20+ years of being in the field, this year is turning out to be a transitional year for Power Source, Lionheart’s program for highly at-risk adolescents. In February, The Department of Justice (DOJ), through its site CrimeSolutions.gov, added Power Source to their list of “what works in juvenile justice.” CrimeSolutions.gov is an effort undertaken by the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to identify effective, quality programs and practices in the fields of criminal justice, juvenile justice, and crime victimization to serve as evidence-based models for the field. Being included in this repository of evidence-based practices significantly raises the profile of the Power Source program. It is also now included in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP’s) Model Programs Guide.
