The COVID-19 pandemic currently presents significant challenges for juvenile justice policy and practice. In the face of this crisis, juvenile justice leaders and partners are working around the clock to keep youth, families, staff, and communities safe.
This webinar, hosted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform and the Council of Juvenile Justice Administrators, featured three juvenile justice agency leaders for a discussion of the challenges their agencies are facing and the strategies they are implementing in response. Juvenile justice practitioners and partners are invited to hear how these leaders and their systems are navigating the impact of COVID-19 across various key areas, including:
- Meeting the needs of youth and families
- Supporting staff wellbeing
- Maintaining facility safety and programming
- Providing community-based supervision and services
