Meeting the Educational Needs of System-Involved Youth, OJJDP

This document outlines the steps the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and other partners will take to ensure the Correctional Education Guidance Package (link to the website provided) is a useful tool for the field. OJJDP “is committed to reforming our nation’s juvenile justice system so that it promotes positive education outcomes for all system-involved youth, enhances their academic and social-emotional skill sets, lessens the likelihood of youth reentering the justice system, and increases their chances of success in life.” This publication explains OJJDP’s commitment to the cause, discusses future plans, and provides resources and relevant publications.
