The Long Beach SHORTSTOP Program assists young men and women ages 10-17 away from the juvenile justice system through legal education for juveniles and their parents and can result in successful diversion.
Every year, we fulfill our overall goal to deliver a continuum of mentoring and counseling programs that enable at-risk youth to gain the self-management and life skills they need to create successful futures. Understanding that making lasting behavioral change is difficult or impossible for children if not adequately supported by the family, we also fulfill a goal of engaging parents with their children’s interventions and providing support and information for them so that the entire family can benefit not only from the youth’s new behaviors, but also from parents’ understanding of their children’s personal growth as they learn more about themselves through our programs.
