GENaustin’s 180 Program provides services for court-ordered teen girls. It functions as a collaboration with local juvenile justice judges and schools. Its goals are to decrease rates of juvenile delinquency and increase in-school functioning, critical thinking skills and self-sufficiency for program participants. 180 fills a gap in services available to adolescent girls in the community. GENaustin’s 180 Program reaches many girls after a first offense and helps them get back on track, preventing them from entering or re-entering the juvenile justice system. Each of the 8-week group sessions includes a curriculum that focuses on developing girls’ bonding, goal-setting skills, self-esteem, mental health, attachment to school, violence prevention, issues with authority and substance abuse prevention. Upon completion of the initial eight weeks, participants are encouraged to continue their participation via optional monthly workshops.
