The top story reports on the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's September meeting, which focused on a Harris County, TX, program which offers a variety of community-based services for system-involved youth in one location. The Tribal Connections section features an Indigenous youth researching the effects of invasive plant species on traditional medicinal plants, a program designed to deter substance misuse by strengthening the resilience of youth living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska's one-stop Youth Crisis Intervention Center.
