Contracting Agency: OJJDP

The National Youth Court Center (NYCC) at the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) provided training and technical assistance and served as an information clearinghouse to youth court programs in the United States. The Center was created by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and funded by OJJDP’s Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grant Program, in collaboration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. The NYCC aims to assist communities in developing and operating effective youth court program models that strengthen the ability of the juvenile justice system to hold youths accountable for their behavior, while enhancing public safety through active youth participation in the juvenile justice system.
