Annotation: This monograph outlines the promising practices in programming for girls who are already involved in the juvenile justice system or who are at risk of delinquency.
Abstract: The purpose of the monograph is to provide practical information to practitioners and policymakers on how to design and implement gender-specific programs for girls. The first chapter emphasizes the urgent need for programming for girls and offers a statistical look at female delinquency, provides a summary of female adolescent theory, and identifies the risk factors girls face because of gender. Chapter 2 describes the planning involved in creating gender-specific programs. It cites the policies that encourage gender-specific programming for girls and presents reports from States that have taken ground-breaking steps on behalf of girls. It defines gender-specific programming and provides an overview of the elements programs must provide for girls. Chapter 3 provides an in-depth look at the key elements and features of programs that are designed to serve the specific needs of girls. An appendix describes 16 promising programs currently offering gender-specific services to girls in both residential and community-based settings.
