New Mexico

Improving Outcomes for Youth (IOYouth) works with state and local jurisdictions to align their policies, practices, and resource allocation with what research shows works to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth while enhancing public safety.

New Mexico launched a comprehensive review of its juvenile justice system in April of 2017 as part of the Improving Outcomes for Youth Initiative led by The Council of State Governments Justice Center.

Ensuring that our youth have all the tools that they need to succeed is our highest purpose.
