Youth who are involved with the juvenile justice and child welfare systems face many challenges and barriers to academic and vocational success. Regardless of the reasons for their involvement, youth in these systems are "disproportionately children and youth of color who currently have, or have experienced, a host of risk factors that are associated with poor academic achievement, delinquency, recidivism, substance abuse, and mental health issues" (Osher, Gonsoulin, & Lampron, in Leone & Weinberg, 2010, p. 1). Whether due to high rates of mobility, mental and/or behavioral health needs, living in poverty, or delinquent involvement, these youth often face struggles that their non-system-involved peers do not. Specifically, educators need to provide these youth with individually tailored support services to address their academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs. This guide provides a range of practices and implementation strategies designed to foster a supportive educational system that addresses individual student needs and help students overcome the barriers and challenges to their academic and vocational success. A list of resources and examples is provided. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
