Juvenile Justice Policy: Final Report from the Models for Change Evaluation

About the Course:

Models for Change is an initiative of The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to accelerate juvenile justice reforms and promote fairer, more effective, and more developmentally appropriate juvenile justice systems throughout the United States. The core state strategy, a multifaceted model of comprehensive systems change, supported the development and spread of a range of innovations at the state and local levels. In June 2013, the Foundation partnered with Mathematica Policy Research and the University of Maryland to design and conduct a retrospective evaluation of Models for Change. The evaluation focused on the core state strategy, the action network strategy, and the national context in which Models for Change played out. This report is a digest and synthesis of several technical reports prepared as part of the evaluation.
