Young Adult Justice: Emerging Research and Innovative Practices

Past Event
April 24, 2018, 8:00 am

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center, with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance

In this webinar, representatives from the National Reentry Resource Center and the New York City Department of Probation discuss emerging research and innovative practices related to improving outcomes for young adults in the justice system. Drawing on guidance gathered at a 2017 convening of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers hosted by the CSG Justice Center and the Harvard Kennedy School, the CSG Justice Center developed Do’s and Don’ts for Reducing Recidivism Among Young Adults in the Justice System—a resource that details proven and promising practices for working with the young adult population. The New York City Department of Probation is a national leader in innovative strategies designed to work specifically with this population.
