Our Journey Together: Helping Youth with Juvenile Records
Author(s): Employment and Training Administration, Division of Youth Services
Organizational Author(s): US Department of Labor
Interested in learning about services or resources available to formerly incarcerated youth and the practitioners who serve them? We know that many of the individuals who have a criminal record face various restrictions that can affect their ability to obtain employment, housing, public benefits, and access to other rights and benefits. It is critical that the workforce system has the knowledge and resources that will help youth they serve succeed.
This webcast explores the consequences of a juvenile adjudication. Serena Holthe from the National Juvenile Defender Center provides an overview of efforts across the U.S. to mitigate those consequences through criminal record clearance policies. She also introduces the Clean Slate Clearinghouse (CSC), a project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and developed by The Council of State Governments Justice Center. The CSC provides people with criminal records, legal service providers, and state policymakers with information on juvenile and adult criminal record clearance policies in all U.S. states and territories.
