Our Parent and Youth Empowerment Program (PYEP)  was selected as an Best Practice Program by the United States Department of Justice , Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) under the category of Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) Reduction.

For More information, Click HERE to view the OJJDP website for more details.

Program Outcome Measures

The data for Fiscal Year 2013 highlights the success of the program.  EBYFSB received 212 referrals from Maryland Department of Justice (DJS) and the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).  Of the 212 youth referred, 147 (69%) were reconnected to their parents/guardian, avoiding unnecessary secure detention at the Baltimore City Juvenile Justice Center.  55 (26%) were placed in shelter; and 10 (5%) were placed in detention.  It should be noted that the benchmark for the PYEP was 40%.

Congratulations Maceo!
