The Real Costs of Confinement and “What Works” to Improve Youth Outcomes
March 30 at 3:00pm ET
Juvenile justice systems have achieved substantial reforms, but many still struggle to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth. Many systems devote significant resources to confining youth, often at the expense of more effective community-based approaches, which would keep youth closer to home.
Please join CJJ for a webinar on "The Real Costs of Confinement and 'What Works' to Improve Youth Outcomes" on Monday, March 30 at 3:00 PM EST.
Presenters will share new findings on the actual costs of confinement, including collateral costs to society, such as missed opportunities to reduce recidivism and promote education. This webinar will highlight the core principles demonstrated by research to improve outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system. Presenters will also offer concrete recommendations and lessons learned from the field for translating this research into policy and practice.
