Coalition for Juvenile Justice Releases New SAG Guide on Youth Engagement

JUVJUST - Youth Partnership: A Call to Action for State Advisory Groups

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice has released "Youth Partnership: A Call to Action for State Advisory Groups," a new resource to help state advisory groups (SAGs) engage with youth impacted by the juvenile justice system.

The guide focuses on ways that SAGs can build new partnerships with youth, further develop existing relationships with youth, and ensure youth voices are being heard. The guide provides action steps that SAGs can take to engage youth in areas such as recruitment, onboarding, and retention.
