Support and technical assistance for the states

The National Resource Bank is a group of 16 leading national juvenile justice research, reform, and advocacy organizations that provide expert advice, training, and technical assistance to the core states and action network sites. The National Resource Bank helps to provide a birds-eye perspective on the local work, and connect the sites to successful practices emerging in the network and across the nation.

In addition to supporting the work of the sites, the National Resource Banks helps to document and share the successes and models of the initiative, to promote broader juvenile justice systems reform.
