Sioux Council Juvenile Diversion Programs
The Sioux Council's three diversion programs: Teen Court, RISE and The Community Accountability Board are all designed to provide youth with a positive alternative to the court system. Youth participate in structured programs and group interactions which are intended to improve self-esteem, self-understanding, decision-making, communication, respect, responsibility, caring and honesty. All three programs work closely with the Minnehaha County States Attorney's Office and are court approved.
