System Change Through State Challenge Activities: Approaches and Products
(NCJ 177625) March 2000
Bulletin, 12 page(s)
Hsia, H. M., Beyer, M.
Describes pervasive problems in the juvenile justice system and Congress's response to these problems when in 1992 it created the State Challenge Activities Program. After providing an overview of the 10 State Challenge Activity areas, this Bulletin describes the characteristics of systems change and identifies approaches used by States to effect systems change. The Bulletin also describes and provides examples of 11 themes of systems change efforts that emerged from a study of materials submitted to OJJDP in spring 1998 by 24 States and 1 territory concerning their State Challenge activities.
