RR This is simply outstanding!
Branville Bard He/Him
01:27:22
understanding trauma is the key to NOT revictimizing people! Excellent Rob
Beth Olanoff
01:27:39
Any comment on the generalized anxiety and depression among our young people brought on by the pandemic?
Mary Beth Tinker
01:30:57
Preventing trauma means implementing public policies that prevent poverty and racism. Poor kids and kids of color are much more likely to be traumatized by current
David Keller Trevaskis
01:34:52
Kathy mentioned Act 35--check out the toolkit for civics that PDE createdhttps://www.pdesas.org/Page/Viewer/ViewPage/48
David Keller Trevaskis
01:37:57
The Act 35 focus is what allows PDE to give educators Act 48 credit for attending today. The CLE Board approves this program for 4 CLEs for lawyers because it goes to the ethical duty of lawyers to give back (2 ethics CLE) and the substantive knowledge being gained on trauma and so much more.

Julie Mowrer
01:51:56
For Evan: was Youth Court part of another class, its own club, its own class? How did you select those 13 students and was that group set for the year to eliminate having to train new people often?
Amy Nohe
01:53:35
Are there blueprints on how to start a youth court?
Katrina Charland
01:53:55
Yes, the Center for Court Innovation has a start up manual.
Litisha Boateng
01:54:14
Evan: How did your team follow up with sanctions that was given?
Julie Mowrer
01:54:41
Were the trials conducted during the school day?

Evan Kramp
02:05:04
To Julie: Yes the class was specifically a Youth Court class. Students were originally selected by who we thought might be good at it and might benefit from it. As time went on, students started coming to us and asked to be a part of it. We kept the same students from one year to the next so they could be the expert trainers for the students new to the program.
Kathy Smith
02:06:18
Julie - there are different models. Sometimes social studies or history class is used. Sometimes it’s after school - better during school.
Evan Kramp
02:07:03
To Litisha: For each case, a member of the Youth Court was given the responsibility to follow up with the respondent. If they didn’t complete their assigned disposition, the referral was sent back to administration to be handled.
Evan Kramp
02:07:46
To Litisha: By the end of my time at SMHS, we were at a completion rate of over 90%
Gregg Volz
02:08:29
Amy: We have a manual that is very detailed and also has lesson plans. New York has one and there are also others around the country.

"People over Problems!"
Katrina Charland
03:24:43
When you give kids a chance, it's amazing to see what they can do! The confidence of one adult can be life changing for at risk youth.
James Williams
03:26:35
Not can be…but rather, will be life changing for at risk students
Katrina Charland
03:27:45
Good point!!
James Williams
03:28:44
Your whole presentation was a good point. So well done.

James Williams
03:32:56
So many warriors in the Youth Court movement! How is it that I have not the good fortune of meeting you Stephanie?
Stephanie Jirard
03:33:12
Thank you for the invitation. I'm at Shippensburg University if anyone would like to reach out.
Abby Diebold

Thank you for having me!
David Keller Trevaskis
03:33:50
The first word was "Youth" I will give the second word at 2:45 p.m. and these guesses are wonderful--but would we be so obvious?
Katrina Charland
03:34:41
Yes, thank you for including me!
Kayla Orange
03:38:43

Here is the link to the youth court report http://jsg.legis.state.pa.us/resources/documents/ftp/publications/2019-07-30%20YOUTH%20COURTS%20web%20.pdf
Kayla Orange
03:57:35
I cant find that Youth court report.
John Baker
03:58:21
me neither
Kayla Orange
03:58:36
Found it
Liam N. Power
03:58:37
Will the task force reinvestment recommendations provide opportunities for more potential funding for youth court JJ diversion programs?
Kathy Smith
03:59:35
I can send anyone the Youth Court report to anyone who wants it. Email me at smithkathleenmarie@gmail.com
Liam N. Power
03:59:44
And if so, and given what we have heard today, it seems that major consideration should be given to youth court funding

Beth Olanoff
04:02:21
Does anyone know anything about any efforts to include education on the connection between trauma and juvenile discipline in higher ed teacher and principal education programs?
Kathy Smith
04:03:04
Great question Beth.
Amy Nohe
04:04:05
The issue is that most out of home placements are as a result of probation violations. Kids are given so many chances and connected to community based services, but are failing to follow through.
Amy Nohe
04:04:52
Youth Courts could be a powerful tool that get to kids before it gets to formal charges.
Gregg Volz
04:06:22
Thank you Noah.
Deborah Krull
04:07:03
Statistics show that Truancy is an indicator of future juvenile crime and placement. Is there any recommendation from the Task Force on more resources for schools/district courts to deal with Truancy?
Kathy Smith
04:07:28
Terrific presentation Gregg and Noah. Thank you!
Noah Bein
04:07:40
Please don't to contact me with any questions about the Task Force and any subsequent efforts to enact the recommendations! You can reach me any time at nbein@pewtrusts.org or at (202)680-3728
Noah Bein
04:07:59
Please dont *hesitate* I meant to say! Please do reach out.
Noah Bein
04:10:09
Ms. Krull, in part because truancy is a dependency matter in PA, there was not direct discussion of truancy among the Task Force members. But the expansion of school-based programs that the TAsk Force calls for could certainly also include supports or interventions for students with truancy issues.
Deborah Krull
04:10:49
Thank you Mr. Bein.
Kathy Smith
04:10:52
We will have to have someone from York come next year and talk about the truancy court there.
Kathy Smith
04:16:48
