* JUMPSTART is an intensive treatment-oriented program specifically designed for juvenile offenders who can function in a non-secure environment and remain in the purview of the courts, but with close supervision by D.Y.A.. It is designed for early integration of clients back to the families, schools and communities.

*EXTENDED AUTHORIZE LEAVE is a less intensive form of the Jumpstart program. Juvenile offenders, while remanded to D.Y.A., only have conditions of authorized leave to abide by and are checked periodically.
