Description

Motivating youth involved with the juvenile justice system is an important factor in reducing recidivism. How can facilities, agencies, and others in the community help these youth develop and sustain the motivation to succeed? In NDTAC's Webinar, participants heard the perspectives of youth who were once involved in the deep end of the criminal justice system but now serve as role models for others. Dan DeLucey and Reginald Dwayne Betts shared their journeys and identified strategies that motivated them and other system-involved youth to rewrite their stories.
