This was my second time inviting Strategies for Youth out to host the Juvenile Justice Jeopardy and just like the first time it was a great success. By far this is the best workshop my youth have engaged in and walk away saying they have learned something new! It provides my youth with another outlook on the law and makes some of them take a step back and think before they act or re-act to a situation. Every time I get a new group of youth in I engage them in the JJJ and will continue to do so as long as they are willing to accept us!
