Group: Vera Institute for Justice

Description

With support from the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, in April 2009 researchers from the Vera Institute of Justice’s Center on Youth Justice (CYJ) started a year-long process evaluation of the DYRS secure placement reforms. Drawing on documentation supplied by DYRS, as well as interviews and focus groups with DYRS leaders; personnel from New Beginnings; DC family court judges; trainers from the Missouri Youth Services Institute (MYSI), who served as consultants in the reform process; and staff from the Maya Angelou Academy (the school at New Beginnings), CYJ researchers sought to map DYRS’s reform strategy and identify factors that either negatively or positively affected implementation.
