Juvenile records do not just disappear when youth turn 18, and those records can significantly affect a child’s employment, housing, and educational opportunities, leaving many young people with tremendous hurdles as they attempt to become successful adults. This webinar will explore the breadth of collateral consequences of a juvenile adjudication and discuss ways in which youth can overcome some of those barriers.
This webinar will be particularly helpful for professionals who work with youth involved in the juvenile court system.
