Improving Outcomes for Young Adults in the Justice System

Past Event
February 22, 2016, 2:00 pm, Eastern

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center

This webinar focuses on how juvenile and criminal justice policymakers and agency leaders can work to reduce recidivism and improve other outcomes for young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 who are involved in these systems. Presenters discuss young adults’ distinct needs, as well as the limited research available on what works to address these needs, and recommend potential steps that policymakers, juvenile and adult criminal justice agency leaders, researchers, and the field can take to improve outcomes for this group of young people. In addition, presenters will provide practical examples from states and jurisdictions across the country that are working to achieve these goals. This webinar draws upon the issue brief Reducing Recidivism and Improving Other Outcomes for Young Adults in the Juvenile and Adult Criminal Justice Systems, which was recently released by the CSG Justice Center.
