ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Adolescent development research over the last decade tells us what justice-involved young people need to be successful when they leave residential placement and/or exit community supervision: education, employment, family and community connections, stable housing, at least one positive adult relationship, confidence, resilience, and hope- to name a few. As part of a cooperative agreement with Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Performance-based Standards (PbS) operationalized the research findings into reentry practice standards and data to measure how well the practices are implemented – shifting the field from a focus on preventing and measuring failure, aka recidivism, to positive youth outcomes. Juvenile justice leaders from Alabama, Kansas and Rhode Island will share how they use data to create successful reentry programs and strategies.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL REENTRY RESOURCE CENTER
The NRRC was established by the Second Chance Act (Public Law 110-199). Signed into law in 2008 and reauthorized in 2018, the Second Chance Act authorizes federal grants to government agencies and nonprofit organizations to provide reentry services—including employment assistance, substance use treatment, housing, family programming, mentoring, victims support, and other services—and to support corrections and supervision practices that aim to reduce recidivism.
