The New York University project describes two goals to reduce New York City (NYC) girls’ risk and increase protective factors, with a focus on reducing juvenile justice system (JJS) involvement and enhancing girls’ self-determined needs and strengths. The first goal is to will be to identify 125 JJS-involved girls by intervention and family courts to deliver advocacy through the evidence-based intervention model, ROSES (Resilience, Opportunity, Safety, Education, and Strength). The second goal is to develop ROSES as a sustainable community-based alternative for JJS-involved girls in NYC beyond the funding period so that this critical resource for reducing girls’ risk remains in NYC.
