Overview

Crowded juvenile correctional centers, escalating costs of confinement, and
high rates of recidivism have sparked renewed interest in the need to bring
innovative ideas to bear on juvenile aftercare philosophy, practice, and
programming.

In the summer of 1987, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention launched its Intensive Community-Based Aftercare Programs initiative to help public and private corrections agencies develop and implement effective aftercare services for chronic and serious juvenile offenders who initially
require secure confinement. Through the use of examples drawn from data and observation, this Summary, a policy and procedures manual, will provide the reader with a clear overview of the structure and function of key program elements and components. Used together with its companion pieces, An Assessment and A Community Care Model, this manual will help guide corrections agencies as they develop aftercare programs that meet the needs of chronic and serious juvenile offenders across the Nation.
