Many of us are fortunate to experience the power of supportive relationships in strengthening our belief in ourselves and connection to our community. But for isolated groups like young offenders, how do we create and scaffold supportive relationships that influence change? If your mentoring program serves adjudicated youth or you’re interested in developing services for these young people, join this webinar to hear research on effective practices for mentoring with youth involved in the juvenile justice system, presented by leading researcher Roger Jarjoura, Ph.D, with American Institutes for Research. Dr. Jarjoura will be joined by practitioners currently implementing best practices in this area, including some who have been involved in the juvenile justice system themselves.
