Crossover Youth & the Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM)

The Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM) is a multi-agency, cross-system practice model that aims to address the needs of youth involved in both child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Its core goal is to reduce further youth involvement in the juvenile justice system in a manner that is consistent with the needs and best interests of the youth and the need for the protection of the community. Hear a CYPM graduate talk about how the model helped him.

CYPM was developed by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University. New York City created its own Model as a joint initiative of ACS, Department of Probation(DOP), and Family Court and was implemented city-wide in 2016.
