Attorney General Chairs Meeting of the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

May 24, 2011

Attorney General Eric Holder

On May 23, 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder chaired the quarterly meeting of the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in Washington, DC. An independent body within the executive branch, the Council works to improve the coordination of federally funded youth programs.

The meeting included presentations on the intersection between school discipline and delinquency and evidence-based, non-punitive disciplinary approaches; and highlights from a drop-out prevention and college access program. The Council also provided an update on its consolidated report, which addresses the Council's four priority issues: education and at-risk youth, tribal youth and juvenile justice, juvenile reentry and transition to adulthood, and racial/ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system.
