|Webinar To Discuss Toolkit of Prevention Programs for Latina Youth
July 20, 2017
On August 1, 2017, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, OJJDP, in collaboration with the National Girls Initiative, will present "Mi Hermana's Keeper: A Toolkit of Promising Practices for Juvenile Justice Prevention Programs Supporting Latina Youth." This webinar will highlight a new toolkit for serving Latina youth who have been or are at risk of being involved with the juvenile justice system. This toolkit includes a literature review of why system-involved Latina youth need support, nine program- and system-level recommendations, an action checklist, and feedback from Latina youth, caregivers, and stakeholders. This resource was developed based on a study of the Family Keys Program, an OJJDP Best Practice Model that Southwest Key Programs created to keep status offenders from becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
