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.
