Juvenile Justice

Mentors Crucial to Curb Recidivism for Youths, published in the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE), a publication covering juvenile justice and related issues nationally on a consistent, daily basis (also as downloadable PDF).
It has been said that all a child needs is one caring adult in order to become a success in life. When a child is removed from home because of parental abuse or neglect or the child’s delinquent behavior, often the best path to a successful life involves one caring adult who acts as a mentor and a guide. If this is true, it contains an important message for juvenile court judges and for the attorneys and other professionals who children meet.
