Background Information on JJCPA & YOBG
The JJCPA program provides state funding for probation departments to implement programs that have proven effective in reducing crime and delinquency among at-risk youth and youthful offenders.
The YOBG program provides state funding for counties to deliver custody and care (i.e., appropriate rehabilitative and supervisory services) to youthful offenders who previously would have been committed to the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice.
