ACCESS Youth

The goals of ACCESS Youth are to reduce the number of DC youth in contact with the juvenile justice system; reduce recidivism rates; decrease truant behavior and increase pro-social behaviors through targeted early-intervention and prevention-based programs. Three core programs help us meet these goals: Mediation, Life Skills, and Community Service.
