National Girls Institute: The National Girls Institute of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) conducted 64 listening sessions across the United States to hear from at-risk or justice system-involved girls, their parents/caregivers, and key professional and community stakeholders across the continuum of services. One key goal was to assess the training, technical assistance, and informational needs of state, tribal, and local entities serving girls and their families.
