OJJDP Second Chance Funds Support Peer-to-Peer Learning
Using Second Chance Act funds, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) funded the Dennis M. Mondoro Probation and Juvenile Justice System Enhancement Project in 2019.
In support of the project, six sites were selected to receive tailored training and technical assistance from the Robert F. Kennedy Resource Center for Juvenile Justice. The project helped these sites incorporate adolescent development into their practices, screen for and treat trauma, and identify effective alternatives to formal involvement in the juvenile justice system.
This blog post by from the RFK Resource Center for Juvenile Justice highlights a January 27, 2022 virtual convening of forty representatives from the six project sites to celebrate community supervision system improvement successes and share lessons learned.
