Immediate Intervention Program

The Immediate Intervention Program collaborates with county attorneys in the 20th Judicial District to improve the lives of young people. The program offers two types of diversion.


A pre-file diversion does not result in a court record, while a post-file diversion entails a court appearance.


Immediate Intervention also requires youth to report to Juvenile Services. The frequency of these visits depends on individual circumstances.


Classes cover a range of topics including, but not limited, to:


  • Substance use
  • Responsible behavior
  • Dealing with difficult feelings
  • Family relationships
  • Building strong values


Young people can discuss the issues that affect them personally.


Juvenile Services staff members lead the classes, which are based on an evidence-based curriculum.
