Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $784,194)

The project’s purpose is to promote positive youth outcomes and public safety while reducing recidivism by assisting youth to successfully transition from juvenile residential facilities back to their communities. This will be accomplished by expanding and strengthening prosocial, evidence-informed programming for youth in long-term custody and reentering the community; conducting pre- and post-program assessments of risk and protective factors, employment aptitude and interests, and social and emotional needs and strengths of youth; developing and implementing comprehensive pre- and post-release individual rehabilitation plans for each youth; implementing and expanding supportive, trauma-informed, evidence-based programing and services for at least 48 youth based on Positive and Creative Youth Development practices; and providing individualized, community-based wraparound supports to at least 36 youth (12 per year) post reentry.
