OJJ continuously seeks to improve programs and services to youth through relevant research, training, and program evaluation. The agency has made a commitment to utilize treatment interventions that have the proven ability to help youth acknowledge accountability, learn pro-social attitudes and behaviors and avoid risky thinking and actions. Research indicates that the most efficient and effective way to accomplish this goal is through the implementation of evidence-based programming/interventions. The resources listed below have been used to make some of these improvements.
