About NJJEC

The National Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center (NJJEC) is designed to assist state, local, and tribal entities with the evaluation of juvenile justice programs and implementation of evidence-based initiatives. We provide a number of resources to guide juvenile justice agencies and practitioners to select, implement, evaluate, and sustain programs supported by research evidence.
