In a new video interview posted on the PBS NewsHour website, OJJDP Administrator Liz Ryan discusses challenges faced by youth involved in the justice system and highlights OJJDP’s work to provide these youth and their families with support.
Ryan discusses OJJDP’s Second Chance Act programs, which help youth successfully transition out of the justice system and back into their communities. The Administrator emphasizes the Office’s focus on providing system-involved youth with employment skills and other resources while in confinement to support their successful reentry.
