The Second Chance Act awarded grant funds in FY18 to provide technical assistance to six diverse jurisdictions with the goal to “improve outcomes of youth placed on community supervision, particularly those with co-occurring disorders, in the interest of reducing delinquent behavior and promoting public safety.”

In collaboration with these sites, the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice developed comprehensive juvenile justice system improvement plans based on best practice standards and ensured that critical improvements were sustainable, measurable, and replicable.

This interactive Webinar features leaders from participant jurisdictions who discuss challenges, innovative solutions, and valuable lessons learned that support future replication in other states and local jurisdictions.

  • John A. Tuell, Executive Director, Michelle Darling, Senior Program Director & Senior Consultant, and Jodi Martin, Senior Program Director & Senior Consultant, RFK National Resource Center
