Youth Out of Education Mainstream October 1996

Broadcast Overview 
The U.S. Departments of Justice and Education have developed a joint initiative to address the needs of youth who are truant, drop-out, expelled or suspended from school, afraid to go to school because of violence or fear of violence, or need to be reintegrated into school from a juvenile justice setting. "Youth Out of the Education Mainstream" will help communities work together more effectively and efficiently by promoting local community partnerships to develop prevention and intervention strategies.

On Wednesday, October 30, 1996, OJJDP broadcast a national satellite teleconference on three components of the "Youth Out of the Education Mainstream" initiative: truancy, dropping out, and reintegration of youth from a juvenile facility into a mainstream education setting. The broadcast will showcase effective and promising programs that give these youth the opportunity to turn their lives around and become productive members of society. The programs' directors and practitioners will answer questions during a call-in portion of the broadcast. The teleconference also provided information on how to receive resource publications and training materials 
to use in your own community.
