Juvenile Justice Bulletin: Aftercare Services. Juvenile Justice Practices Series.
Gies, Steve V.
This bulletin examines aftercare services that provide youth with comprehensive health, education, family, and vocational services upon their release from the juvenile justice system. Aftercare can be defined as reintegrative services that prepare out-of-home placed juveniles for reentry into the community by reestablishing the necessary collaborative arrangements with the community to ensure the delivery of prescribed services and supervision. This bulletin describes how aftercare can address some of the problems that exist in the juvenile justice system. It also reviews relevant research, examines aftercare as is relates to system change, and identifies promising aftercare programs. (Contains 26 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
