July 28: Shay Bilchik on juvenile justice reform

We Really Do Know What Works - Using the Evidence to Create Lasting Change in Juvenile Justice and Beyond, featuring Shay Bilchik (Founder and Director of the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University) and Karen Pittman (Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Forum for Youth Investment), takes place Thursday, July 28 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm.

During the free online event, Pittman and Bilchik will discuss a variety of topics including:

  • A large meta-analysis of juvenile justice programs concluded that "there is no indication that there were juveniles whose risk level was so high that they did not respond to effective interventions"
  • The analysis of more than 500 studies identified four elements of a successful program
  • A standardized program evaluation protocol can be used to identify gaps in major juvenile justice and child welfare system practices
  • This model is similar to the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality used by many after school systems
