The Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, led by Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps, provides consultation, technical assistance, and training to serve local, state, and national leaders, practitioners and youth-serving agencies to improve system performance and outcomes for youth involved with the juvenile justice system. The RFK National Resource Center focuses primarily on youth with prior or current involvement in both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, known as dual status youth, the review and improvement of juvenile probation systems, and the use of a model framework to address the state and national laws and policies governing the exchange and sharing of data, information, and records for youth and families.
Exciting Opportunity for Jurisdictions to Improve and Enhance Probation Reform Efforts
The RFK National Resource Center is inviting jurisdictions to apply to become one of three selected sites to receive consultation and technical assistance to undertake a comprehensive Probation System Review. The competitively selected jurisdictions will partner with the RFK National Resource Center, as part of its Dennis M. Mondoro Probation and Juvenile Justice System Enhancement Project.

As part of Our Work, the RFK National Resource Center provides support and resources to communities seeking to improve outcomes for youth and families served by the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Nationwide, communities receiving our on-site support have achieved remarkable outcomes by taking on a Dual Status Youth Reform Initiative or conducting a Probation System Review. Our site-based consultation and technical assistance is tailored to each community to guide jurisdictions through a collaborative exploration of data, practice, resource, and legal matters in order to design, implement, and sustain meaningful reforms. In addition, we support jurisdictions undertaking reform by providing numerous online publications and resources.
