In conjunction with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, JRSA began developing the National Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center (NJJEC) in 2010. This project follows an earlier JRSA project funded by OJJDP, which concluded in 2005, called the Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center. The purpose of NJJEC is to improve the evaluation capacity of states, tribes, and local communities and facilitate the use of evidence-based programs and practices in juvenile justice. A project advisory group comprised of state, local, and tribal juvenile justice representatives will help inform activities in the first year of the project.

We are currently conducting an assessment of the evaluation needs of states, communities, and tribes. Following the conclusion of this assessment, project activities will include, among other elements:

  • User-friendly evaluation publications
  • An online evaluation tutorial to facilitate cost-effective training
  • On-site and off-site technical assistance
  • NJJEC Newsletters
  • Webinars on evaluation and evidence-based programs and practices

Resources from the Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center are available on the NJJEC website, including juvenile justice publications and an online tutorial entitled National Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center web tutorial.
