Engaging Family Members in Reentry Efforts Webinar September 30, 2010

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

The National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) and The Center for the Advancement of Mentoring will host a two-part webinar on engaging family members in reentry efforts and identifying pro-social support for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.

Topics: Speakers for the first webinar will provide a framework for a family-focused approach and a glimpse at its application in two settings: 1) the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (addressing family engagement in its juvenile justice facilities and within parole) and 2) a New York-based program (working with families in the community and offering home-based services for court-involved youth).

Title: Family Engagement in Reentry for Justice-Involved Youth

The second webinar will be held on November 1, 2010. It will focus on incorporating juvenile justice-involved youth’s family and social network into reentry mentoring programs. Speakers will discuss identifying, recruiting, and training “natural mentors,” such as extended family members, teachers, or neighbors, to work alongside other reentry program-assigned mentors to help youth better transition back into the community and, in many instances, into adulthood. The National Reentry Resource Center will send out an announcement next month about registering for this webinar.
