This application is based on the philosophy of “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child”. The CBAT process brings together community leaders to identify and work a plan for each youth in the PLL program who will be returning to their community after being placed in a residential program away from home. The CBAT plan includes specific action steps to meet the needs of the youth as well as provide protective factors to both help the youth reintegrate back into his community and prevent recidivism (re-placement in a residential program).
