The report builds upon research previously conducted by the Urban Institute and an extensive survey of youth court programs conducted by the National Youth Court Center. It provides up-to-date data to give policymakers and the public an overview of youth court programs, their characteristics, and benefits. The report’s survey to programs garnered a 40% return rate, which has yielded a successful view of the current youth court landscape. The report’s findings cover topics such as: program completion, cost, returns on investment, impact on youth offenders and volunteers, educational and civic opportunities, program sustainability, and recommendations to policymakers.
