With funding provided by the City of New York through its Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), the Research and Evaluation Center reviewed and compiled recent research and practice innovations focused on adolescent development and the youth justice system. Researchers considered the appropriate role of youth justice in enhancing essential assets for adolescents, including prosocial relationships with peers, families, and communities. Using the most recent insights from the field, the project produced a written guide for ACS to use in developing new policies and practices.
