The Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is an independent body within the executive branch of the federal government. The Council's primary functions are to coordinate federal juvenile delinquency prevention programs, federal programs and activities that detain or care for unaccompanied juveniles, and federal programs relating to missing and exploited children.

The Council's most recent quarterly meeting was held June 3, 2005, at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington, DC. The meeting agenda included remarks by HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson, a discussion of coordination efforts in furtherance of the White House Task Force for Disadvantaged Youth, and presentations by youth-serving organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., Boy Scouts of America, and the National 4-H Council. Robin Delany-Shabazz, recently named Director of OJJDPís Concentration of Federal Efforts Program, was introduced as the Councilís new Designated Federal Officer.

The Council's quarterly meetings are open to the public. Notices about upcoming meetings are featured in the Federal Register.
