Workshop: The National Girls Initiative, Using A Strengths-Based And Intersectional Approach To Juvenile Justice Involved Girls

The OJJDP National Girls Initiative (NGI) provides training/technical assistance to those working to improve system responses to girls who are at risk of entering or who are involved in the juvenile justice system. This workshop highlights OJJDP supported efforts that use an intersectional framework to understand the complex lives of system involved girls, highlights efforts to improve existing policies and practices from a gender and strength- based lens; and lifts up the voices of girls most directly impacted by the juvenile justice system.
