Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM)

A Learning Program for NYC Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Professionals

About Crossover Youth Practice Model

The Crossover Youth Practice Model (CYPM) is a multi-agency, cross-system practice model that aims to address the needs of youth involved in both child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Its core goal is to reduce further youth involvement in the juvenile justice system in a manner that is consistent with the needs and best interests of the youth and the need for the protection of the community. CYPM was developed by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University. In New York City, it is a joint initiative of ACS, Department of Probation (DOP), and Family Court. The model is currently being piloted in the Bronx and Brooklyn but will soon be incorporated as a best practice for crossover youth citywide.
