Sites Selected for Reentry Training and Technical Assistance

As we celebrate Second Chance Month this April, we are pleased to share the organizations selected to receive training and technical assistance to improve their capacity for collecting, analyzing and using data to enhance their reentry programs.

Join us in applauding the remarkable organizations that have secured their spot from a highly competitive pool of applicants:

  1. Anti-Recidivism Coalition, CA
  2. North Carolina Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
  3. Southwest Key Programs, TX

Led by a dedicated Data Champion, each organization’s team will embark on an exhilarating journey alongside CIYJ and our esteemed partners, the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ). Over the next year and a half, they’ll dive deep into data collection, analysis and performance measurement, with the goal of improving their reentry programs, policies and practices.

This transformative technical assistance initiative is made possible by the unwavering support of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Office of Justice Programs, US Department of Justice, through the FY 2022 Second Chance Act Youth Reentry Program.
