Tanneh Moore, Circuit 12 JDAP Supervisor for BAYS Florida, thinks of the JDAP program as a youth's last stop before probation. JDAP stands for Juvenile Diversion Alternative Program, and serves kids ages 17 and under who are referred by the Department of Juvenile Justice.
At the #GlasserPassports lunch on October 24, Moore spoke to a room of staff from other agencies on the Glasser/Schoenbaum campus. "We're looking for more community partners and more resources for our kids and their families," she says.
BAYS' work with their clients begins with understanding what each individual needs to succeed and stay out of trouble. As she explained to the group, it's never one problem - there are many reasons a youth may arrive at their door.
The 40-minute discussion was not only informative but brought up some ideas and connections that would be beneficial to BAYS and other agencies on the campus - and most of all to the clients they serve.
