green Y.a.r.d. program

The Green Y.A.R.D. Program is a 6-9 month diversion program for first time offenders between the ages of 17 to 24. This programs CORE Purpose is to redirect young, first time offenders out of the criminal justice system.

The Green Y.A.R.D. Program was created by Judge Green. As she was seeing increasing numbers of young adults entering into the criminal justice system, she began developing a more comprehensive approach to working with these individuals to redirect them towards a positive and productive direction.

Judge Green decided that a specialty court framework would provide the structure and support these individuals need. After meeting with several organizations and groups whose vision encapsulated that of her own, Judge Green found that she would have the support from the community and internally, within other departments of Dallas County.
