Mentoring in Juvenile Treatment Drug Courts

August 3, 2015

From December 2013 to January 2014, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges visited and observed mentoring programs at 10 juvenile treatment drug court (JTDC) sites and conducted a focus group to discuss strengths and challenges faced by these programs. This technical assistance brief provides an overview of this project as well as tips and strategies for implementing mentoring programs within JTDCs. Both courts who want to start a mentoring program or refine an already existing mentoring program can benefit from this brief.
