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 discuss system development in which systems direct eligible youth toward diversion opportunities rather than toward adjudication and disposition. Participants will review processes that allow for contemporary rehabilitative and treatment focused diversion opportunities. Participants will engage in dialogue related to the development of the juvenile justice system that engages innovation with respect to local Tribal tenets.
