Annotation: This CD-ROM contains publications and presentations that supplement the workshop materials presented at the OJJDP (Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention) National Conference December 12-14, 2000, entitled, "Justice for Children: A Vision for the 21st Century," offering additional tools for research, policy, and practice.
Abstract: Six publications and two presentations are classified as general resources pertinent to the conference theme. One track of the CD-ROM contains 32 publications related to "Protecting Our Children." These publications are on topics pertinent to this theme, including facts and figures on threats to children, parents' prevention roles, the online victimization of children and youth, parental kidnapping, and environmental hazards such as lead. Track II contains 28 publications pertinent to the theme of "Youth in Action." They showcase examples of youth courts, partnerships between youth and adults, peer mediation, and vocational preparation. Track III, "Communities Facing the Future: Responses to Juvenile Crime and Victimization," consists of 29 publications that focus on how communities respond to juvenile crime and victimization, both locally and at the State level. Readings and Internet links detail how jurisdictions have responded to their unique situations, many infused with Federal grants for programs such as the Comprehensive Strategy, Drug-Free Communities, and Title V Community Prevention. Track IV, "Promising and Effective Interventions: Addressing the Myth That Nothing Works," contains publications that offer results and methodologies for research and evaluation that lay a foundation on which communities can build, with attention to such issues as mentoring, community corrections, and drug prevention. The remaining three tracks contain publications under the following theme titles: "Responding to Today's Offenders," "Emerging Issues and Innovative Programs," and "Strengthening the Juvenile Court System in the 21st Century." Relevant web sites for the conference are also profiled.
