Juvenile Justice Day Services (JJD) 10: Planning for Transition and Aftercare

Juvenile Justice Day Services promote public safety and reduce the need for out-of-home placements by allowing youth to reside in their communities while they address problems and develop the attitudes and skills needed to make responsible choices, avoid negative behaviors, and become productive, connected, and law-abiding members of their communities.
Note:Although “Planning for Transition and Aftercare” is a specific core concept standard, it is important to note that transition preparation is not actually an entirely separate practice. In contrast, the services provided throughout program involvement should be designed to help youth avoid lives of crime and become productive members of their communities.
