The section covers a range of diversion programs, including restorative justice, diversion courts, community service, and diversion programs for specific populations, such as LGBTQ+ youth and youth with mental health needs. The site also provides resources and tools for practitioners and policymakers who are interested in implementing diversion programs in their communities, as well as for youth and families who are seeking information on these programs.
