Background Information on the Council
  • The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act established the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (Council) as an independent body within the executive branch of the federal government. The Council\'s primary functions are to coordinate federal juvenile delinquency prevention programs, federal programs and activities that detain or care for unaccompanied juveniles, and federal programs relating to missing and exploited children.
  • The Council, which is chaired by the Attorney General, meets quarterly and at the call of its Chair. The Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) serves as the Council\'s Vice Chair.
  • The Council, as restructured by the 1992 amendments to the JJDP Act, is composed of nine ex officio members and nine nonfederal members who are juvenile justice practitioners. The ex officio members are the Attorney General; the Secretaries of Health and Human Services, Labor, Education, and Housing and Urban Development; the Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention; the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy; the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation for National and Community Service; and the Assistant Secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security.

Council Activities and Decisions

  • Two Priority Areas Moved Forward at 2006 Council Planning Meeting

1. Pilot project. Continued work on identifying geographic area(s) where member agencies can work together in support of state and local efforts and evaluate the impact of this federal collaboration on local outcomes to develop model for federal collaboration. Pilot project work group and Shared Youth Vision Initiative team have been meeting on frequent basis to discuss alignment of these two efforts, given the overlap in purpose, staffing.

2. Inventory. Intent is to compile information on comprehensive community/systems change initiatives and associated technical assistance to identify opportunities to share resources and facilitate work across agencies, increase effectiveness of federal support to states and locals, and facilitate diffusion of best practices. Initial inventory complete and agency points of contact identified. Finalizing statement of work for contractor support.

  • WHTFDY recommendations are basis for Council activities. Pertinent recommendations from the White House Task Force for Disadvantaged Youth and how to best coordinate among member agencies in fulfillment of the Council’s mandate were discussed at the November-December 2006 planning session. The Council continues to use these as points of reference for its work. The recommendations follow on the next slide.
