The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has awarded $400,000 to the American Institutes for Research and the National Crittenton Foundation to support the National Girls Institute (NGI). NGI works to reduce the number of girls in the juvenile justice system and improve the treatment of girls in detention by developing standards of care, providing access to resources, and providing training and technical assistance to professionals working with at-risk and delinquent girls and their families. Announcing the award, OJJDP Administrator Robert L. Listenbee reiterated the Office’s commitment to advancing the understanding of girls’ issues and improving program and system responses to girls in the juvenile justice system.
