Arts Programs for Juvenile Offenders in Detention and Corrections: A Guide to Promising Practices

Print More

This report details the strengths and weaknesses of six juvenile offender arts outreach programs that were part of joint efforts by the OJJDP and NEA. Each of the programs – which included performing arts, multimedia and other strategies – was successful in its context, the report says. Because each program had a unique design and set of participants, none could be directly replicated. But this analysis would benefit other arts outreach programs by providing helpful suggestions for improvement. 40 pages. $5.
