Early implementation experiences of OJJDP’s tribal Green Reentry programs
This report describes the early implementation experiences of three American Indian tribes funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in 2009 under the Tribal Juvenile Detention and Reentry Green Demonstration Grant program. The Green Reentry funding was intended to support the use of green technologies and environmentally sustainable activities in reentry programming for youth involved in the tribal justice system. A cross-site evaluation (conducted by RTI and American Indian Development Associates) is documenting the implementation of the Green Reentry programs and determining the impact of the programming on the tribal youth and communities served. This report presents a brief profile of the Green Reentry program in each site, followed by a discussion of cross-site implementation experiences.
