Juvenile Justice

Our juvenile justice work seeks to

  • Reduce the number of children and youth involved in the juvenile justice system -- and improve outcomes for children and youth who are involved -- through best practices that keep children and youth in school; keep children, youth, schools, and communities safe; address academic, mental health, and behavioral health needs as early as possible; provide children and youth with developmentally-appropriate services; and reduce recidivism.
  • Reduce inequities in the juvenile justice system attributable to poverty and race.
