OJJDP Family Listening Sessions. Executive Summary
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
From March through July 2011, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), in collaboration with the Campaign for Youth Justice and the Education Development Center, convened four listening sessions with families and youth who had direct experiences with the juvenile justice system at the local and state levels. The discussions focused on four broad topic areas: the expectations and the reality of families' first encounters with the juvenile justice system, whether the youth's needs were met during the period of confinement, how the family was treated and served while their child was confined, and the availability of aftercare services. This report presents a summary of the participants' experiences and the many insightful recommendations for reform that they shared during the listening sessions. The following are appended: (1) Full List of Questions; and (2) Sponsoring Organizations. [This report was compiled by Management Solutions Consulting Group, Inc.]
