Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice: 2013 Recommendations to the President, Congress, and OJJDP Administrator
(NCJ 248442) July 2014
Report, 32 page(s)
The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) is a consultative body established by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act and supported by OJJDP. It is composed of appointed representatives of the nation's State Advisory Groups and advises the President and Congress on juvenile justice, evaluates the progress and accomplishments of juvenile justice activities and projects, and advises the OJJDP Administrator on the work of OJJDP. This report presents recommendations developed by the FACJJ subcommittees and approved by the full FACJJ focusing on four areas of major concern to the juvenile justice community: evidence-based youth justice practices; youth engagement; youth justice and schools; and youth justice and disproportionate minority contact.
