Models for Change: Building Momentum for Juvenile Justice Reform tells the story of how innovative state leaders from across the country are creating a new path toward fair, rational, effective and developmentally appropriate models for juvenile justice reform. Pennsylvania, Illinois, Louisiana and Washington are already moving to reform and reshape their juvenile justice systems. These states have demonstrated strong leadership in juvenile justice policy, value collaboration and engagement and, because of their efforts, have changed the political climate to make deeper systems reform possible. Models for Change, a new initiative from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is seeking to build on their efforts in the hope that these states develop new model policies, practices and procedures that will strengthen their reform work, and possibly represent changes that could be replicated in other states.
