Introduction to Young Adult Justice and System Interventions
Young people, between the ages of 18-26 (young or emerging adults), experience disproportionately more arrests, probation revocations and reincarcerations than the rest of the adult population.
A just, safe and equitable future demands that local and national policymakers, practitioners, advocates and community leaders understand and act on young adults’ unique characteristics and needs.
Join us for this three-part webinar series where experts, using local examples, will explore content included in the Young Adult Justice: A Nationwide Inventory of Policy and Practice report, which NLC released in 2022 with the support of Loyola University of Chicago.
• Lisa Jacobs and Sarah Free of Loyola University of Chicago
• Karlos Lloyd of Heartland Alliance
• Nigel Bowe of JEVS Human Services
• Tanya Tijerina of the Albuquerque Young Adult Court
