In this audiocast, Stanford Sierra Youth & Families spotlights one of their programs that works directly with youth served by probation. October is Juvenile Justice Awareness month. Teens served by probation are often thought of as lost, tough, and resistant to help. The reality is they need what any other child in a system of care needs–stability and a safe place to land so they can grow and develop. This audiocast features the program and one of their families whose focus has been not only teens, but teens with probation cases.
