About This Event

Caring adults and communities can be best positioned to provide opportunities for justice-involved young people and their families, and they can provide many benefits such as building positive character, guiding them in planning for their future, and realizing their potential. In this webinar, we will be discuss the ways mentors and mentoring programs can support youth and their families during their complicated interactions with the juvenile justice system and restore a sense of belonging. This webinar aims to bring awareness to an often under-served population of court-involved youth and the role of mentoring supports and services can play. While using the Elements of Effective Practice (and a trauma-informed lens), community-based and court-based programs will discuss best practices around working with young people involved in the juvenile justice system, and ways to provide essential supports during crisis and transition.
