Preventing Youth from Crossing Over Between the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems
OJJDP Webinar: Preventing Youth from Crossing Over Between the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Systems
Wednesday, September 26, 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET
It is estimated that up to 30% of youth in the child welfare system cross over into the juvenile justice system. This free webinar from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) will: share practices implemented through the Crossover Youth Practice Model to reduce the likelihood of youth crossing over between the child welfare and juvenile justice systems; discuss multiple strategies Los Angeles County, CA, has employed to prevent children in the dependency system from penetrating the delinquency system; and, explore how engaging the education and workforce sectors can reduce penetration of crossover youth. This webinar is the second in a series on improving outcomes for multisystem-involved youth. Registration is required. Read more and register.
