About the Impact Paper
The National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have researched different approaches to community-led diversion; spoken to experts in communities, organizations, and jurisdictions around the country; and identified a set of best practices to support community-led diversion efforts. The result is an impact paper that traces the core ideas of community-led diversion, the many diversion points in the juvenile justice system, and the community-based resources that contribute to healthier and safer communities. The paper looks at the role of critical systems and practices such as probation, mentorship, and restorative justice. It takes a trauma-informed approach to understanding the supports that communities need to make available to diverted youth. To illustrate what community-led diversion can look like, the paper gives examples from around the country including an NCRC-supported community-led diversion program in San Diego: The District Attorney Juvenile Diversion Initiative. The success of this and other programs points to the wider potential for community-led diversion around the country.
