Saving our Youth..
Many juvenile delinquents lack proper guidance and direction in their lives. Because they are subjected to multiple risk factors, these children may become more violent. Delinquency seems to remains a complex, costly and distressing problem for American Society. There are so many problems and concerns juvenile delinquents face such as lack of parental involvement, dropping out of school, expulsion, drug and alcohol use, peer pressure, and gang influence. As we know environmental surroundings, abuse, and insufficient rehabilitation each may play an extensive role as to why juveniles engage in violent activity. So the question is how will we (as a community) develop effective strategies to help reduce recidivism rates for juveniles?
