In recent years, family engagement has come to the forefront of juvenile justice system reform.  While much progress has been made, system officials and stakeholders still face challenges building effective partnerships with families.  On this webinar, presenters will review a new Campaign for Youth Justice report on a nationwide study of best practices in family-system partnerships, showcase examples from jurisdictions that have been intentional about infusing family voice into their systems, explain five features of a transformed juvenile justice system, and introduce the FAMILY Model, which jurisdictions can use to assess their own systems from a family perspective.
