The Model Programs Guide
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has created a user-friendly, online tool to locate scientifically tested and proven programs that address a range of issues across the juvenile justice continuum. The guide profiles more than 175 prevention and intervention programs and helps communities identify those that best suit their needs.

State Juvenile Justice Profiles Web site
The site features descriptive information and analysis regarding each state's juvenile justice system. Developed in collaboration with state and local juvenile justice practitioners, each state profile identifies who handles intake, investigation, and probation supervision of delinquents; who administers detention centers and correctional institutions; and who takes responsibility for juveniles after they are released from state commitment. http://www.ncjj.org/stateprofiles/
