Justice by Geography: Issues that Inequitably Impact Rural Youth

Teaching & Engagement, 2014


Educated University students interested in the juvenile justice field on the unique juvenile justice and legislative issues facing rural communities. Students were placed with a rural juvenile justice professional or agency for two months to gain hands-on experience. The project created greater interest for juvenile justice professionals to actively pursue careers in a rural area.
