Re-Imagining Juvenile Justice in Pima Co.

School & Main Institute was in Tucson, Arizona, May 14-15, 2018 working on Re-Imagining Juvenile Justice. On our first day, we defined Positive Youth Development and a Positive Youth Development Mindset and on the second day we looked at the essential nature of partnership development and collaboration and its role in fostering cross-system work between and across agencies, departmental units and other juvenile justice service professionals. Our goal was to help gain a better understanding of cross-system work, what it looks like, and how to move from polite cooperation to a more fully collaborative way of doing business.
