Session 2: Philosophy of Your System - Findings and Purpose Provisions that Represent the Values of the Community (Webinar)

Event Dates
The Tribal Youth Resource Center will be hosting a free five-part virtual learning series to support the development or enhancement of Tribal juvenile justice codes, policy, and procedures.

This session will engage participants in a discussion toward the development of juvenile justice processes that reflect local values, desired impacts and preferred outcomes.

Participants will review and discuss system development processes that provide for meaningful behavior change, fairness and accountability. Participants will additionally discuss ineffectual system responses that may thrust youth toward harm, further delinquency and even the adult criminal justice system

Course Presenter: The Hon. Pat Sekaquaptewa (Hopi), Alaska Native Studies and Rural Development, University of Alaska Fairbanks
