Project Description
Garda Youth Diversion Projects (GYDPs) are community based, multi-agency, youth crime prevention initiatives which primarily seek to divert young people who have been involved in anti-social and/or criminal behaviour. They provide suitable activities to facilitate personal development, promote civic responsibility, and improve long-term employability prospects. The projects may also work with young people who are significantly at risk of becoming involved in anti-social and/or criminal behaviour.

Each GYDP has a Project Committee which is responsible for advising on and approving project planning and strategy, and monitoring and evaluating project performance. Each Project also has a Referral Committee which decides on participants for inclusion in the project.

Programmes and Services can include
"A Life of Choices" Programme "Big Brother Big Sister" Mentoring Programme
"CHART" (Changing Habits and Reaching Targets) Programme "Fred Goes Net" Early Intervention Programme
Crime Awareness Drugs and Alcohol Awareness
Education and Training Employment Preparation
