The purpose in this document is to report on effective practices in preventing or reducing youth offending from countries in the European Union. After analysis and comparisons of crime and youth offending in Europe, the authors highlight innovative and effective projects, grouped according to the type of service they provide. Examples include mental health diversion, cognitive behavior programs, treatment programs for substance abuse problems, interventions within custodial institutions, and education and training programs. For each project, the authors provide a description of its key features, aim, methods, outcomes and evaluations, and contact information.
