Juvenile Justice on the Internet
by F. Warren Benton, Ph.D.
Correctional programs for juveniles are a very important part of the justice system, because of their potential effect on the youth of today and the citizens of tomorrow. Many juvenile justice programs, especially those at the local level associated with family courts, are integrated with related social service and education programs designed to help troubled youth. This makes sense because children in trouble with the law frequently have related problems with their families, schools, and communities. This column reviews sources of information on the internet about juvenile justice.
The Big Picture: Schools, Families, and Communities
A useful set of internet links related to juvenile justice should start with the big picture, general child welfare-oriented sites. The goal of the Children's Defense Fund (CDF) is to "educate the nation about the needs of children and encourage preventive investment in children before they get sick, drop out of school, suffer family breakdown, or get into trouble." The CDF maintains Links for Child Advocates . This site includes links to related organizations concerned about children, as well as sources of data, and other resources.

For Grandparents and Special Others Raising Children ARIZONA
Grandparents and Other Relatives Raising Children A State Fact Sheet August 2002 Across the country, more than six million children approximately 1 in 12 children are living in households headed by grandparents or other relatives. Arizona has more than 62,000 children living in households headed by grandparents or other relatives. In many of these households, grandparents and other relatives are the primary caregivers (“kinship caregivers”) for children whose parents cannot or will not care for them due to substance abuse, illness and death, abuse and neglect, economic hardship, incarceration, divorce, domestic violence, and other family and community crises. In response to the growing numbers of these kinship care families, state legislatures, public and private agencies, and grassroots coalitions in Arizona and across the country have begun to expand services and supports for children living with kin inside and outside of the foster care system. A Look at the Numbers: Kinship Care in Arizona The data below show the numbers of grandparents who are living in households with at least one grandchild under the age of 18, as well as the numbers of grandparents who are the primary caregivers for these grandchildren. These numbers were reported by the 2000 U.S. Census and are available for every place (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) in the country, including cities, towns, villages, and boroughs, on the U.S. Census website.*

Mentors help students one-on-one with homework, reading or math and also spend time with the students in structured recreational activities. Students who are paired with a mentor are becoming more confident in their school work and social skills, and are enjoying the special connection with an older youth or adult volunteer mentor very much.

This financial support is administered through the USGA's Foundation Grants initiative that helps ensure golf's affordability and accessibility. The 48 grants were awarded in 28 different states. A complete list of all 48 grants is attached. The states receiving the most grants include New York (4), Florida (4), and New Mexico (4). The grants awarded in New Mexico were part of a series of seven grants supporting the initiation of golf programs on Native American Reservations. "We are proud to continue expanding our support of programs and projects initiated by local champions across the nation," said USGA President Buzz Taylor. In the first five months of 1999, the USGA Foundation Grants Program has awarded 71 grants totaling $1,842,660. This year's grant activity continues financial support resulting from the October 1997 announcement that the USGA would commit $50 million over the next decade "For the Good of the Game." The USGA has targeted initiatives serving the economically disadvantaged, the disabled, and girls (ages 8-18), as well as the construction of facilities created with the specific goal of affordably introducing new participants to the game. Along with financial assistance, the USGA Grants Program supports a diverse cross-section of grantees with continued assistance in the areas of public relations, fundraising, curriculum development, course access, fiscal planning, and general resources and information. The long-term goal of the USGA Grants initiative is to help programs attain fiscal stability as they work to expand opportunities in the game of golf.

    In many cases, homeless youth leave home to escape problems in the home such as physical and sexual abuse, drug abuse, and severe family conflict. An estimated 46% of homeless youth have been physically abused, and 17% have experienced unwanted sexual activity by a family or household member. An estimated 66% reported having an alcoholic parent. Some youth may become homeless when their families suffer financial crises resulting from lack of affordable housing, limited employment opportunities, insufficient wages, no medical insurance, or inadequate welfare benefits. These youth become homeless with their families, but are later separated from them by shelter, transitional housing, or child welfare policies. Because of their age, homeless youth have few legal means by which they can earn enough money to meet basic needs.
