Abstract

Youth with justice involvement face a complex web of bias, racial discrimination, and structural barriers that prevent them from living healthy and productive lives. The federally funded workforce-development system has the potential to help these youth become economically self-sufficient and increase their chances of success–and has a statutory mandate to serve the hardest-to-serve young people. Collaboration among workforce partners, courts, and the various agencies that make up the juvenile-justice system can create an ecosystem of alternatives that keep young people safe in their community. This toolkit, directed at practitioners and leaders in the juvenile-justice system and others with limited familiarity with the workforce development system:
• Outlines evidence-based practices in youth workforce development,
• Provides an overview of the workforce system funded under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA),
• Makes recommendations for how to make WIOA-funded services work better for youth with justice involvement at the local level, and
• Lays out some key steps to forming effective interagency partnerships. These ideas are illustrated by success stories from around the country.

Abstract

The Center for Health Care Strategies produced this brief as a technical assistance tool to help providers screen for exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma among adult and pediatric patients. The brief draws from the findings of a multi-site demonstration pilot study called Advancing Trauma-Informed Care (ATC). The ATC study sought to identify trauma-informed methods for the health care sector. (author abstract modified)
