IOYouth positions state and local policymakers as well as system leaders across branches of government to
- Match youth with the most effective level and type of supervision and services in facilities and the community;
- Track system performance and outcomes and hold state and local agencies and service providers accountable for results; and
- Ensure that resources are allocated efficiently across the juvenile justice and other youth-serving systems, as well as across state and local lines.
The CSG Justice Center partners with jurisdictions over an 18-month period to establish a bipartisan, interbranch task force, conduct a data-driven assessment of the juvenile justice system from the point a youth is referred to the system through a youth’s reentry into the community, provide recommendations for improvement, and offer technical assistance.
