Reducing Structural Barriers to School and Work for People with Juvenile Records
People with juvenile records can face significant, long-term barriers to their education, credentialing, and employment. The CSG Justice Center conducted a first of its kind analysis of these collateral consequences in 12 states and found vague and inconsistent state policies limit education, credentialing, and employment opportunities for people with juvenile records and put them at greater risk of recidivism.
The CSG Justice Center hosted a discussion exploring these education- and employment-related collateral consequences and what concrete steps state leaders and other stakeholders can take to reduce restrictions to school and work for people with juvenile records.
