Increasing State Advisory Group Effectiveness: Building Capacity for State Leadership
(NCJ 250227) July 2016
Grant, 28 page(s)
Coalition for Juvenile Justice
Through this report, based on a process of analyzing and engaging SAGs, their leadership and the context in which they operate, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice, in partnership with The Tow Foundation and OJJDP's Center for Coordinated Assistance to the States, hopes to identify and gauge those factors that contribute to SAG effectiveness on a state-by-state basis. The ultimate goal is not only to develop dynamic metrics to measure the SAGs capacity, but also to help bolster their ability to become champions for evidence-based and developmentally-appropriate juvenile justice policy and practice.
