NCJFCJ Releases Infographic on Community-Based Alternatives to Youth Confinement

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges has released an infographic for judicial leadership and juvenile justice stakeholders on the benefits of community-based alternatives to secure confinement for justice-involved youth as well as for the communities where they live. The infographic offers strategies for implementing community-based alternatives to youth incarceration, explains which youth should be considered, details possible outcomes, and more.

In a recent blog post, OJJDP Administrator Liz Ryan discusses OJJDP's support of community-based alternatives to juvenile justice facilities, including OJJDP’s FY 2022 Community-Based Alternatives to Youth Incarceration Initiative.
