The Impact of Teen Court on Youth Offenders This forty-eight (48) page publication is the final report on the federally funded evaluation of Teen Courts and it was conducted by the Urban Institute.  It is the most current and most thorough research available on teen courts and youth courts available.  Rare recidivism rates are reported.  More than 500 cases from (3) sites in (3) states were compared with similar cases handled by the traditional juvenile justice system.  Reductions in recidivism took place in all (3) Youth Justice programs to include the Anchorage Youth Court Alaska, Independence Peer Court in Missouri, and the Tempe Teen Court in Arizona.  This report was funded by OJJDP and conducted by the Urban Institute.  This is a must read for anyone interested in teen courts, youth court, peer court, student court, and youth peer panels.  (Click here) Research and Data Collection
Making Youth Court as Effective as Possible This eight (8) page technical assistance bulletin examines program in the state of Kentucky over a twelve year period.  It provides some solid ideas for what to do and what not to do.  It is important to note Kentucky is one of the few states where the programs are operated more similar than other states where local programs within a state can operate them very different, albeit with similar outcomes anticipated.  This bulletin was funded and published by the ABA and OJJDP.   Deborah Williamson, James Wells, Mabel McKinney-Browning, and Scott B. Peterson are responsible for this technical assistance bulletin enhancing the Global Youth Justice Movement. (Click here) Research and Data Collection
