New report focuses on what courts can do to better serve youth

National Center for State Courts trends report features Models for Change work and experts, including articles on juvenile indigent defense, racial and ethnic disparities, dual status youth, status offense reform, and mental health issues.  


Models for Change supports a network of government and court officials, legal advocates, educators, community leaders, and families working together to ensure that kids who make mistakes are held accountable and treated fairly throughout the juvenile justice process. We provide research-based tools and techniques to make juvenile justice more fair, effective, rational and developmentally-appropriate.
