Raising the Bar on Juvenile Reentry: What Young People Say They Need

On April 26, 2022, Performance-based Standards (PbS) hosted a webinar featuring a panel of young people with lived experience discussing their experiences and how juvenile justice agencies could have better helped them with reentry. This panel was moderated by Kim Godfrey Lovett, Executive Director of PbS, and Melissa Sickmund, Director of the National Center for Juvenile Justice.
