January 28, 2014
OJJDP has released "Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents." In 2013, OJJDP and the White House Domestic Policy Council and Office of Public Engagement hosted a listening session on mentoring children of incarcerated parents for juvenile justice professionals, families, and allies to share their expertise and experiences. The listening session continues OJJDP’s commitment to ensure that all young people get the best possible start in life. The report summarizes participants' recommendations, ways to reach this unique at-risk population, and evidence-based mentoring practices that can serve the needs and support the strengths of children of incarcerated parents.
