Feedback form is now closed.
This presentation will provide a broad overview of the youth justice system, including a brief historical perspective, the ways in which we are failing youth who are in trouble with the law, and research that we should consider when making decisions about young people. The presenter will share policy and practice changes as well as community based models from other jurisdictions that have improved outcomes for youth. Participants will be encouraged to draw upon this information to think more deeply about how afterschool programs can play a stronger role in youth justice reform and how to best support justice system involved youth in Wyoming, particularly vulnerable populations such as low-income youth and Native American youth
