Annotation: Synthesizing the observations and lessons learned during a 2-day meeting of the Youth Reentry Roundtable, held in San Francisco on May 28-29, 2003, this report describes youth reentry and its policy relevance to communities nationwide.
Abstract: Drawing liberally from the insights and comments of the authors of papers presented at the Roundtable as well as the participants, this report identifies critical facts on youth reentry, including the specific programming and policy challenges that must be addressed. Recommendations are then offered for next steps in research and practice. One recommendations calls for a reorientation of the juvenile and criminal justice systems to focus on reintegration of young offenders into society. Another recommendation proposes the creation of reentry programs that reflect a youth-development perspective and that address the influences of race/ethnicity and gender on reentry experiences. The report also recommends inclusion of community organizations and institutions as well as family networks in reentry initiatives. Finally, the report recommends the development of a national agenda for public education and research relevant to the challenges posed by youth reentry. The appendices provide a listing of the Roundtable authors and participants, a brief description of each Roundtable paper, and a summary of each of the presentations and ensuring discussions. 41 references
