Objective: Describe what aftercare services are provided for juveniles released from secure incarceration.           The release of juvenile offenders from an institutional life opens new problems and issues for them. The freedom that they seek to regain in the correctional facility is often their worst enemy upon release. This revelation heightens the need for appropriate and effective aftercare in juvenile correction. You will take what you learned from the reading assignment and create a 2-page (500 words in body) essay highlighting the information listed below.

To achieve maximum points for content analysis, the following elements need to be thoroughly addressed: 

Explain the purpose of aftercare for juveniles.

  • Explain problems might juveniles experience when released from an institution.
  • Do you think institutional programming typically leads to juveniles’ manifesting “institutionalized” behavior upon release? Why or why not?
  • Why transitioning back to the community can be difficult for most juveniles?
  • What programs appear to have the promise for juvenile aftercare? Why?
  • What are some of the services and placements a juvenile can benefit from while on parole?
  • What are current trends in the legislation and philosophy of juvenile justice?
  • Provide at least two scholarly sources. If you cite a dictionary, it will be in addition to the required two sources. Dictionaries and non-peer-reviewed sites such as Wikipedia are not considered scholarly.
