Earlier this year, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange launched a comprehensive Juvenile Justice Resource Hub that offers engaging stories, research and information on critical issues in juvenile justice. As a companion to the Hub, JJIE is publishing six series of in-depth articles. The first series spotlighted mental health, substance abuse and the juvenile justice system, the second focused on community-based alternatives, the third on juvenile indigent defense. This week, JJIE launches the next series of coverage, spotlighting evidence-based practices.
The Hub and content series are powerful resources for practitioners, reformers, researchers, policymakers, academics, journalists and anyone who cares about youth well-being. We hope you’ll help spread the word to your networks.
To make it easy to do so, JJIE.org has created sample social media posts, site and eNewsletter language, images, a blog for reposting and other information to help you to alert your networks about this launch. Feel free to customize any of these.

JJIE.org Resource Hub Expands to Evidence-Based Practices – What Really Works in Juvenile Justice?
What works in terms of keeping kids out of the juvenile justice system? In recent years, scientists have determined that there are many effective programs and policies that substantially reduce recidivism. These science-backed and promising practices have helped significantly decrease the need for secure confinement of many youth. In partnership with the National Juvenile Justice Network, JJIE.org has just launched the latest section of their Juvenile Justice Resource Hub on evidence-based practices – exploring what really works to keep youth out of the juvenile justice system. In this new section you can learn about key issues and reform trends relating to research-backed practices, as well as cutting-edge reforms, model policies, links to experts, and ideas for action.
