Annotation: Juvenile corrections industries were examined from both theoretical and empirical perspectives to determine whether a youth's involvement in such an industry will reduce the likelihood of recidivism, whether State juvenile corrections administrators have sufficient interest to implement such ventures, and whether the private sector has sufficient interest to establish joint business partnerships with juvenile corrections.
Abstract: An analysis of research literature revealed support for the proposition that such programs can interrupt the cycle of juvenile delinquency. In addition, a telephone survey of all 50 State juvenile corrections agencies revealed extensive interest among juvenile corrections administrators in the concept of a public-private partnership involving corrections and businesses. The concept generates almost unanimous interest among juvenile corrections administrators, although they do not have a clear view of the actual design of such a program. Finally, interviews with 34 private companies operating in adult prisons in 18 states revealed almost unanimous interest in expanding the concept of corrections industries to juvenile corrections. These 34 businesses produce 30 different product lines and provide 12 different services. Overall, findings indicated that expanded business partnerships between juvenile corrections and private industry are both possible and desirable.
