Juvenile Justice System
Diversion: Identifying Youth with Disabilities
We are working with the Diversion unit of the Cook County Juvenile Court, advocate attorneys and parent advocates to identify youth with disabilities and get them the appropriate services they need in the educational system in order to stop recidivism and give the youth real opportunity.
Literacy tutoring, Juvenile Probation
We are working with the Educational Advocacy unit in Probation at the Cook County Juvenile Court to implement an effective literacy tutoring program in Fall 2012. Through specific training and transformational learning, Roosevelt University students will serve as literacy tutors.
