  Abstract: The Community Restitution and Apprenticeship Focused Training (CRAFT) program was started in 1994 by the Home Builders Institute to address youth crime and unemployment and help reduce recidivism. It offers preapprenticeship training and job placement in the home building industry and related occupations for adjudicated youth referred to the program by their State departments of juvenile justice. The program is a partnership involving private juvenile and corrections facilities; juvenile judges; juvenile justice system personnel; education agencies; community-based organizations; and other human service agencies. It includes: outreach and recruitment; assessment and screening; individualized development plans; case management services; industry-validated trades-related training; building-industry-related academics; community service; academic preparation and substance abuse treatment; employability and life skills training; and community transition and long-term follow-up.
