The Imprint produced “Positive Youth Justice: Curbing Crime, Building Assets” in 2015. It is a series that imagines an entire continuum of juvenile justice services built on the positive youth development framework.

We accomplish the “creation” of that continuum by profiling successful programs and organizations involved in different juvenile justice systems. Below are links to all of the pieces related to the series.
