August 24, 2015

Mentoring in JTDC Image The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) and the National Center for Juvenile Justice have released "Mentoring in Juvenile Treatment Drug Courts." From December 2013 to January 2014, NCJFCJ visited OJJDP-funded mentoring programs at 10 juvenile treatment drug court (JTDC) sites and conducted a focus group to discuss their strengths and challenges. This brief provides an overview of this project and offers tips and strategies for starting and refining a mentoring program within a JTDC.
