Juvenile Justice System | Troubled Teens Boarding School C.A.R.E.
The aim of Juvenile Justice System is to meet an important shortage of trained experts for programs, which provide troubled teens with strong, positive role models in their communities. The Program emphasizes educational and academic variety as students are recruited from a wide range of disciplines like: illegal justice, criminology, sociology, psychology, education, music therapy, and theatre. All of the students in the program share the similar common attention -- working with young people within communities to help control the growing problem of juvenile delinquency and crime.
Girls who have a problem of sexual and physical abuse, mental illness, substance abuse, family disconnection, arrived in the juvenile justice system. They are excessively concerned in the juvenile justice system as status offenders (e.g., runaways), are exploited as prostitutes, and often violate terms of probation and parole. To make logic of these complex and multi system pathways, legal representation must be flexible, contextual, and consistent over time. As the number of girls in the juvenile justice system increases, this contextual model resists the impulse to simplify and compartmentalize delinquency among girls. Focusing on the client, the pathway she takes into delinquency and the full range of her legal needs humanizes criminal behavior so that the lawyer truly represents the client, and not just the case.
According to a study, crimes commit by juveniles are likely to be vacant by law enforcement than are crimes devoted to adults. Therefore, drawing a picture of crime from law enforcement records is likely to give a high estimate of juvenile responsibility for crime.
Juvenile proportion of violent crimes cleared by arrest or exceptional means grew from about 9% in the late 1980s to 14% in 1994, and then fell somewhat, remaining near 12% between 1997 and 2003.
Family Conferences are detained, in definite circumstances, as a way of diverting young offenders from court where the offense is minor.
Family Conferences offer a chance for the teenager, the victim of the offense, family, supporters and a police officer to argue what has happened, how it has affected each person and how the offense will be dealt with. A Youth Justice Coordinator who encourages all participants to arrive, by consensus, at an appropriate outcome, chairs the conference.
