Strategies, Programs, and Resources To Prevent Truancy

The videoconference features evidence-based approaches to truancy and related issues.
Graduated Sanctions: Effective Intervention Strategies for Addressing Delinquency
Broadcast live from the 2005 National Conference on Juvenile Justice in Orlando, FL, this videoconference highlights the efforts of OJJDP and the Juvenile Sanctions Center to support and implement effective graduated sanctions strategies. The broadcast was designed for a diverse audience of juvenile justice services providers.
Working Together To Stop the Prostitution of Children
This December 2003 videoconference examines the challenges that face youth services professionals who are concerned with the commercial sexual exploitation of children and youth. Emphasizing the importance of collaboration among public- and private-sector agencies, community-based organizations, and victims, the videoconference explores effective prosecution strategies to hold perpetrators accountable and features community efforts designed to break the cycle of violence and victimization.
