Juvenile Reentry Measurement Standards project overview screenshotRecognizing the need to measure and better understand what works to keep youths on the path to successful adulthood when involved in the juvenile justice system, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) launched the Juvenile Reentry Measurement Standards project in October 2015. The project’s goal is to provide the field with a set of national standards and outcome measures aligned with adolescent development research that monitor the effectiveness of reentry services and promote practices that result in positive youth outcomes. As described in this project overview from the Pbs Learning Institute, the Standards established the highest expectations for the delivery of reentry services and can be monitored by outcome measures reflecting the impacts on youths, families and communities and offer a guide for the field to implement practices supported by research, implementation science and adolescent development.
