This case study from FSG, The Tow Foundation, and the New York Juvenile Justice Advisory group describes why the complex juvenile justice system was ripe for a collective impact approach to reform, how the process unfolded, and the key elements for the initiative’s success. It also discusses the significant results that have been achieved to date: in just a few short years, juvenile arrests are down by 24% and the number of youth in state custody has declined by 45%, without any increase in crime or risk to public safety.

Thank you for posting this report! I am part of building a collective impact initiative around criminal justice reform in California and the information in this report is helpful and inspiring. It is also a great resource to share with stakeholders to help them understand collective impact and what is possible in a system similar to theirs. If anybody reads this comment, I would love to have a warm contact with whom I can thought-partner regarding strategy or next steps after the initial stakeholder interviews are complete.
