National CASA/GAL recently hosted the webinar Building BRIDGES: The CASA Model as a Template for Addressing the Intersectional Needs of Crossover Youth. If you missed it, you can still access the recording in the National CASA/GAL Member Portal.
The BRIDGES program in DC was a National CASA/GAL Promising Practices Spotlight Award winner in 2022 for its work with dual jacket cases.
Some highlights included:
- Understanding the unique needs of youth involved in the juvenile justice system
- A discussion of how positive engagement can help justice-involved youth to reduce recidivism
- The development of the BRIDGES program – from its inception to becoming a successful, award-winning program
- An insightful Q&A session
