Presented by Philanthropy Connects, the public policy committee of Philanthropy New York, and by its working group on At-Risk Youth.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: All interested funders.
Light lunch will be served.
What happens over time after youth are released from juvenile correctional facilities/programs in New York State? A federally funded study, Long-Term Consequences of Delinquency: Child Maltreatment and Crime in Early Adulthood, looks especially at the impact on girls. It powerfully demonstrates how girls end up being a key to change in the juvenile justice and welfare systems. The reports key findings suggest broader implications and recommendations (see pages 11-18 of the study). Join the study author Rebecca Colman for her description of the findings and the application of this research. Two commentators will delve further into the recommendations going forward for both a policy perspective and for funders and practitioners. The conversation will be opened to the audience to discuss the opportunities for philanthropy to engage this issue from various programmatic angles: whether your programmatic focus is young adult learning, the healthy development of women and girls, juvenile justice, disconnected youth, social policy or a more accountable public system.
