Juvenile Justice

Introduction to the Enhanced Juvenile Justice Guidelines Webinar

In 2005, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) published the Juvenile Delinquency Guidelines: Improving Court Practice in Juvenile Delinquency Cases (JDG). Over the years, the JDG has served as the guidepost for juvenile courts across the country. The JDG identifies the essential elements of effective juvenile justice procedures and describes recommended practice.

Webinar - Understanding Girls and the Juvenile Justice System – A Review of Recent National Data

Participants will learn about available data resources relating to victimization of and offending by girls, and the juvenile justice system’s response to law-violating behavior involving girls. The presenters will demonstrate information available from online data analysis and dissemination tools, with examples of the practical application and use of this information for policy and practice. Participants will have time to ask questions about the data resources and their own data needs and uses.

Join the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) for the webinar “OJJDP Funding Opportunities for Gang Suppression” on Friday, September 7 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET. During this webinar, participants will learn about the two OJJDP solicitations designed to help jurisdictions reduce and prevent gang-related crime and violence.

Webinar - OJJDP Funding Opportunities for Gang Suppression

This webinar will highlight the two Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Gang Suppression solicitations available to prevent and reduce gang-related crime and violence. Key components will be discussed, to include eligibility, goals, objectives, deliverables, and budgetary requirements. The National Gang Center will also highlight ways in which jurisdictions can introduce and/or strengthen comprehensive approaches to develop strategic gang-reduction plans and/or to implement coordinated gang suppression strategies.

Webinar - Gender, Sexuality, and the Juvenile Justice System: Promoting System Improvement

Understanding gendered pathways into the juvenile justice system equips providers with ways to effectively focus on the complex needs, vulnerabilities, trends, and opportunities of each gender's unique experiences. Sexuality and gender identity lenses are equally important to create an environment that elevates lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer/gender nonconforming and transgender youth who identify with female and/or male development, or neither, and varying sexualities, allowing them to be more of who they are.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) released a new resource, Reentry Starts Here: A Guide for Youth in Long-Term Juvenile Corrections and Treatment Programs. This toolkit outlines the steps that youth in juvenile corrections and treatment programs can take to prepare for reentry, from seeking support services, to requesting a school transfer, to finding employment.
