Juvenile Justice Programs - Second edition, 2006

Grades 8-12

We are currently updating Street Law for Juvenile Justice Programs. A new edition of the lessons will be available in January 2016. If you'd like to be notified when they become available, please contact Jazmine Donerson


The Street Law for Juvenile Justice Programs manual provides practical assistance to people who teach students in the juvenile justice system about law and public policy. The manual is also a valuable supplement to existing law-related education, citizenship, or civics programs.

Street Law for Juvenile Justice Programs is a complete set of lessons developed to teach practical legal information and to increase student's resiliency, problem solving, and cognitive skills. The curriculum is ideal for use in a variety of juvenile justice settings, including:

  • Diversion
  • Detention centers
  • Probation services
  • Re-entry & aftercare programs
  • Correctional schools

Teachers can use the lessons in sequential order to create an entire course or select individual lessons to enhance current programs. The lessons contain everything teachers need to guide their students through interactive high-interest classes.
