The New York State Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG) is a board of juvenile justice experts from across New York State that is charged with supervising the preparation and administration of New York State’s federal juvenile justice and delinquency prevention plan. Our website is a home for comprehensive New York State juvenile justice information. It is designed to share what we know about the New York State juvenile justice system; provide information about legal, policy and funding developments; offer convenient access to the training provided at JJAG sponsored events; and enhance transparency in the JJAG’s work to promote accountability, effectiveness, and innovation in New York State’s juvenile justice system.
Regional Youth Justice Team Updates
Regional Youth Justice Teams are regional teams of juvenile justice stakeholders including representatives from local government agencies, service providers, the judiciary, community organizations and youth and families who have been justice involved. The teams were created to further implement New York State’s strategic plan for juvenile justice, as outlined in Safe Communities, Successful Youth: A Shared Vision for the New York State Juvenile Justice System. Each team meets on a quarterly basis to share best practices, identify areas for practice improvement and provide input to state policymakers. Upcoming meetings for each region and a map of the regions’ counties are provided below.
