Attend an OJJDP Webinar to Learn About Mentoring System-Involved Youth
Register to join the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership for the webinar “ReEntry Mentoring: Conversations from the Field on Working with System-Involved Youth” on Thursday, April 20 from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m. ET. During this webinar, participants will learn evidence-based strategies for supporting system-involved youth through mentoring programs. Also, the following organizations will share how they engage system-involved youth through mentoring and how they are expanding:
- Family ReEntry - Working with the judicial branch to receive referrals for youth, this organization has created a community-based mentoring model serving youth (ages 10-17) who are involved with juvenile probation. These one-to-one community matches focus on supporting youth in building internal skills and assets to strengthen personal capacity and reduce recidivism.
- The Governor’s Prevention Partnership - Nationally recognized for its unique approach to establishing positive youth-adult relationships, this organization provides ongoing training and technical assistance (TTA) to help participating mentoring programs successfully work with system-involved youth using an evidence-based and wrap-around services mentoring model.
