Center expands to support Juvenile Justice

January 7, 2019

The Robert F Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, in partnership with The Impact Center at Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute and three prominent national organizations are recipients of a 3-year Second Chance Act award from the Office of Justice Programs/Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Entitled FY 18 Second Chance Act Ensuring Public Safety and Improving Outcomes for Youth in Confinement and While Under Community Supervision (Category 3),  the award seeks to improve local juvenile and criminal justice supervision systems. In addition to FPG, other nationally recognized partners include Keith R. Cruise at Fordham University, Teri Deal of the National Center for Juvenile Justice, and key staff with the National Juvenile Defender Center each provide evidence-based contributions to the approach being taken. Robin Jenkins, Ph.D. is serving as the Principal Investigator/Project Director for The Impact Center.
