Overview

Crowded juvenile correctional centers are symptomatic of the problems challenging a growing number of American communities. Constructing new correctional facilities is difficult in a time of competing demands for scarce
tax dollars.

More difficult still is constructing sound solutions that address the underlying
causes of juvenile reoffending. But as is often the case, the hardest course may
prove to be the most rewarding.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention believes that
intensive community-based aftercare—in coordination with graduated sanctions
where needed—offers a substantive contribution to this quest.

This summary reports the interim results of OJJDP’s research and development
initiative to assess, test, and disseminate information on intensive aftercare program
models that are theory driven and based on risk assessment. Publication
of this summary reflects our continued commitment to sharing this important
information with the juvenile justice community.
