From December 2013 to January 2014, members of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges staff conducted 10 on-site technical assistance visits to juvenile treatment drug courts (JTDCs) with mentoring programs and hosted team members from these sites for a focus group meeting. This brief presents the information acquired during the visits and focus groups. The purpose of this brief is to provide tools, tips, and strategies to jurisdictions interested in beginning mentoring programs and those that have current mentoring programs within JTDCs.
