Forum To Highlight Effective Practices To Refer System-Involved Youth to Mentoring Programs

September 14, 2012

On September 21, 2012, from 10–11:30 a.m., E.T., American Youth Policy Forum and partners will host a forum to discuss findings of "Researching the Referral Stage of Youth Mentoring in Six Juvenile Justice Settings: An Exploratory Analysis" in Washington, DC. The study, which the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention funded, examines how youth in juvenile detention, corrections, or probation; delinquency court; youth/teen court; and dependency court are referred to mentoring programs. Presenters will also identify challenges to the referral process and discuss effective strategies to combat these challenges.
