Kansas juvenile justice needs reform, House panel told

There is a lot of reform needed all over the country. That being said, we like seeing "juvenile justice reform" covered in the media and on the desks of legislators. Change is certainly needed and EBA can help. #reformisgood http://www.kansascity.com/news/government-politics/article54941920.html

Placing so many of the state’s juvenile offenders in detention facilities and group homes is costly and ineffective, a House panel heard this week. A reform bill is on its way.

The Steep Costs of Imprisoning Juveniles With Adults

We'll keep supporting the drum beat of this message until it's heard on Capitol Hill and in the offices of elected officials across the country. Thank you The Atlantic for sharing this important issue with your readers. Kids don't belong in adult prisons! http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2016/01/the-cost-of-keeping-juveniles-in-adult-prisons/423201/

When young offenders are kept in adult prisons, they are much more likely to suffer sexual abuse and violence.

Letter: Anti-bullying programs work

"There are effective evidence-based practices for preventing bullying and violence; practices which, if more broadly implemented, have an impact on both bullying in schools and violence years later."

The Oct. 9 column by Charles Krauthammer denigrates any efforts at gun control and hints that it’s a mental health issue while dismissing even that as an effective target. He offers no plan, no direction, nothing but “whatever you want

Virginia awarded federal grant for juvenile re-entry services

Exciting to see the Washington Post pick up the good news from Virginia. Hopefully we'll continue to see our federal government invest more and more into reducing recidivism. In the meantime, Virginia can help lead the way. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/virginia-politics/virginia-awarded-federal-grant-for-juvenile-re-entry-services/2015/10/09/661b1edc-6dfc-11e5-b31c-d80d62b53e28_story.html

The program is part of a national push to ease inmates back into the community and reduce recidivism.

Fixing juvenile justice

Kudos to Virginia for working toward transforming the state's approach to juvenile justice. Let's all remember that community-based programs are important but focusing on evidence-based programs is key for prevention and early intervention. http://hamptonroads.com/2015/10/fixing-juvenile-justice

YOUTH PRISONS are supposed to be for the very worst kids - the ones who pose a danger to society. But in Virginia, 21 percent of the teens sent to youth prison last year were there primarily for larceny. Another 10 percent were there on a misdemeanor. Sadly, the rehabilitation prospects for those te…

Presidential Proclamation -- National Youth Justice Awareness Month, 2015

October is National Youth Justice Awareness Month! While we celebrate The White House proclamation, we're reminded that justice for our country's youth should be a focus all year long. https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/09/30/presidential-proclamation-national-youth-justice-awareness-month-2015

All our Nation's children deserve the chance to fulfill their greatest potential, and nothing should limit the scope of their futures. But all too often, our juvenile and criminal justice systems weigh our young people down so heavily that they cannot reach their piece of the American dream. When th…

Putting evidence first: Learning from the Rikers Island social impact bond

Surprised that this Social Impact Bond investment by Goldman Sachs and Bloomberg Philanthropies yielded no impact? We’re not! The attainment of socially significant outcomes require the combination of Effective Interventions, Effective Implementation Strategies and an Enabling Context. But -- we are still pleased that SIB's are being tested and working just as they were intended to.

General information

Founded in 2004 in response to the need for system reform within the field of juvenile justice, Evidence-Based Associates (EBA) partners with community-based, model programs and state and public agencies to oversee the successful implementation of evidence-based programs for at-risk youth and their families. Over the past six years, EBA's work in the field has positively impacted more than 10,000 lives in Florida, Louisiana, Maryland and the District of Columbia. As more juvenile justice decision-makers realize the positive influence of evidence-based programs, EBA will continue to advocate for a culture of accountability and focus on ensuring program implementation is accomplished with integrity and fidelity. From program development to clinical implementation to evaluation, Evidence-Based Associates can help leaders in child-serving public agencies navigate the complex challenges of implementing evidence-based programs and to obtain successful outcomes. We are advocates for positive change within the juvenile justice industry. Our goal is to keep kids at home, in school and out of trouble!
