Session 2: Philosophy of Your System - Findings and Purpose Provisions that Represent the Values of the Community

Event Dates

This course is a five-part virtual learning series hosted by the Tribal Youth Resource Center and presented by the Hon. Pat Sekaquaptewa. The course will provide a virtual learning experience to support the development or enhancement of Tribal juvenile justice codes, policy, and procedures. This course is open to all interested communities.

This session will engage participants in a discussion toward the development of juvenile justice processes that reflect local values, desired impacts and preferred outcomes. Participants will review and discuss system development processes that provide for meaningful behavior change, fairness and accountability. Participants will additionally discuss ineffectual system responses that may thrust youth toward harm, further delinquency and even the adult criminal justice system.
