Greenwich Juvenile Review Board

Founded in 2005, The Greenwich Juvenile Review Board (JRB) is a community- based diversion process for youth that may otherwise be referred to the Juvenile Court for minor violations of the law. The JRB is offered to juveniles with a misdemeanor, first-time offense.

Greenwich Interagency Team

The Greenwich Interagency Team brings together community agencies that partner to provide a system of supports and services to children and families. The Department of Human Services is the coordinating hub for the Interagency Team and is part of the overall Community-Based Diversion System plan in collaboration with the Juvenile Review Board program.

The First Selectman’s Youth Commission (FSYC)

The FSYC is a youth-led commission that provides high school age young people of the Town an opportunity to express their concerns and commitment to improving the community’s quality of life. The Commission is comprised of a varied group of young people who represent different schools, geographic parts of Town, interests, and backgrounds and they work directly with Town leaders.

The members of the Commission serve as ambassadors from their schools providing a voice to local leaders.
