Reentry Week 2021 takes place on April 26–30, with a special focus on youth on April 28. OJJDP and the Bureau of Justice Assistance are offering resources and training for reentry practitioners and service providers during the weeklong commemoration. Webinars offered highlight best practices related to youth and families, employment, education, housing, behavioral health, and evaluation.
"We believe in second chances at OJJDP," writes Acting Administrator Chyrl Jones in a new blog post about youth reentry. "A youthful misstep should not permanently derail the course of a young person’s life."
