Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, how do juvenile offenders passing through the juvenile justice system describe their own experience and identify aspects of the system that could have been useful in preventing their involvement in future criminal activities? The author illustrates that youth in the juvenile justice system must be viewed as students in a non traditional classroom. Failure to understand their individual frame of reference will decrease the effectiveness of any program or system that is developed.
