    Juvenile Justice

    KENNESAW, GEORGIA — Kennesaw State University is the home of the Center for Sustainable Journalism, which operates the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange, a website offering news and commentary on juvenile justice issues. This award enables the Center to continue to host and maintain the Juvenile Justice Resource Hub portion of the website, supplementing the Center’s news coverage with comprehensive information on juvenile justice reform trends and developments in issue areas central to the Models for Change initiative, while transitioning permanent Resource Hub oversight and updating responsibilities to Kennesaw State University. This ensures that, as the Foundation’s direct investments in juvenile justice system reform come to an end, the Resource Hub will continue to provide agents of change with vital information and serve as a means of capitalizing on Models for Change reform progress to stimulate a wave of juvenile justice reform nationally.
