The Juvenile Justice Practice Series of NCJRS provides a description of six model youth aftercare programs that prepare juveniles for reentry into the community. Although these programs vary in origin, design, and approach, all share certain formal characteristics. The six programs are described here:
In a 2-page paper students will identify similarities and differences among the programs and state which program sounds the most promising to them? Students should also include recommended changes to the program they select to improve it further.
Students will also include at least one â€œreal lifeâ€ case that resulted from one of these programs.
A minimum of two references, one being from an outside, non-GU source, are required.
