Delinquency Prevention and Youth Development Act; youth services citizen boards; duties; guidelines. Directs the Board of Juvenile Justice to establish and make available to localities a list of best practice program models that are likely to qualify for grants under the Delinquency Prevention and Youth Development Act. The bill requires youth services citizen boards to include representatives of law enforcement and the faith and business communities and allows local governing bodies to appoint as members of the youth services citizen board members of the community policy and management team or a similar entity, subject to certain requirements set forth in the bill. The bill allows youth services citizen boards to establish youth advisory teams for the purposes of consultation and advice regarding youth services programs. The bill removes the requirement that local youth services programs maintain and disseminate an annual inventory of youth-related and parenting-related services and programs available in the locality.
