Mentoring Youth Involved in the Juvenile Court System


MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership

Abstract

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 discuss the ways mentors and mentoring programs can support youth and their families during their complicated interactions with the juvenile court system and help restore a sense of belonging for those involved. This webinar aims to bring awareness to the challenges and realities court-involved youth face and the role that 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 this population, and ways to provide essential supports during crisis and transition.
