Barriers and Promising Approaches to Workforce and Youth Development for Young Offenders. Policy Profiles.
Brown, David; Maxwell, Sarah; DeJesus, Edward; Schiraldi, Vincent
This publication is part of a toolkit that examines systemic barriers to achieving economic self-sufficiency for court-involved youth. It highlights 19 exemplary policy initiatives that fall into the following five categories: innovative approaches, new ways to allocate funds and develop resources, ways to promote collaboration among various groups, ways to promote system flexibility or system reform, and one policy initiative that can be viewed more strictly as youth development. The selection of policies was based on an examination of descriptive information and qualitative data that revealed the details of specific conditions associated with each policy. To gather this information, researchers surveyed national experts about funding, outcome measures and other basic information for policy initiatives they believed had promise. After researchers determined a group of promising policies, they conducted a second survey of policymakers and initiative administrators to examine the five categories in detail. This publication describes the 19 policy initiatives. (SM)
