What is JDAI?

JDAI® is a network of juvenile justice practitioners and other system stakeholders across the country working to build a better and more equitable youth justice system.

The Casey Foun­da­tion spurs the net­work to pur­sue poli­cies and prac­tices in their com­mu­ni­ties, courts and out-of-home place­ments that keep young peo­ple safe and on track for long-term suc­cess, while still hold­ing youth account­able for their actions. The net­work pro­motes a data-dri­ven, prob­lem-solv­ing approach and a series of tools that are root­ed in core strate­gies. These strate­gies are explic­it about racial equi­ty to address the glar­ing over­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of youth of col­or in the jus­tice sys­tem; youth, fam­i­ly and com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment; and com­mu­ni­ty-based alter­na­tives to confinement.
