Improving Outcomes for Troubled Youth by Reducing Reliance on Detention

Date & Time
Tuesday, September 11, 2012, 3:00-4:00pm EST


Bart Lubow, Director, the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), Annie E. Casey Foundation
Mary Marx, CEO, PACE Center for Girls
Wendy McClanahan, McClanahan Associates

Join Bart Lubow, Wendy McClanahan and Mary Marx for an engaging conversation about alternatives to juvenile detention and commitment, and how agencies can collaborate successfully for the best possible youth outcomes. Mr. Lubow will discuss necessary changes to policy, practice and programming in juvenile justice and results of the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI), which has substantially reduced reliance on incarceration and improved public safety by decreasing crime and recidivism rates.

How can agencies collaborate effectively to promote justice reform and achieve similar outcomes in their communities? Mr. Lubow and Ms. McClanahan will share lessons from initiatives including JDAI and the Youth Violence Reduction Partnership (YVRP) on overcoming barriers to sharing and making meaningful use of data to make collaborative efforts as effective as possible.

Ms. Marx will reflect on how juvenile justice reform and more collaborative approaches can benefit individual diversion and early intervention programs’ efforts. She will share how PACE Center for Girls uses a holistic approach to achieve positive outcomes for girls, and describe the role collaboration and performance management plays in their success.
