Initiative To Develop Juvenile Reentry Measurement Standards

Goals and Objectives

OJJDP is working with the Performance-based Standards Learning Institute and its partners, the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators and the Vera Institute of Justice, to develop, test, and disseminate standards for measuring juvenile reentry practices and youth outcomes. The project's objectives are to (1) synthesize and analyze the current literature in implementation science, juvenile reentry, and youth development with current practice in juvenile reentry and data collection across the nation to identify key indicators for measuring the juvenile reentry process, (2) translate the key indicators to user-friendly and understandable draft juvenile reentry measurement standards, (3) pilot test the measurement standards, and (4) revise and provide final recommended measurement standards.
