Educational Planning of Court-Involved Youth provides a framework for alleviating chronic barriers for youth in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. This guide combines best-practice recommendations from national research with direct service tactics employed successfully in multiple counties. Included are the necessary components to implement a collaborative, community-centered intervention system that meets the needs of the county, family, and individual. With the understanding that each county carries its own strengths, barriers, and resources, these tools serve as a model for assessing and adapting the system to cater to the unique needs of each area in which it is implemented. This text helps facilitate the coordination and collaboration necessary to foster comprehensive systems and individualized planning for youth.
