The juvenile justice system, much like adult incarceration, can become a revolving door for teenagers who get locked into a life of crime, with no hope of rehabilitation.
Memphis City Schools, in a partnership with several agencies, will host a forum that focuses on finding alternatives that target those teens in danger of allowing their criminal life to follow them into adulthood.
This forum will be hosted in conjunction with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth, and Shelby County Disproportionate Minority Contact Taskforce.
The forum is Wednesday, September 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the MCS Teaching & Learning Academy located at 2485 Union Avenue.
For more information or to RSVP, contact John Hall, Coordinator for School House Adjustment Program Enterprise (S.H.A.P.E.), at 901-416-6259.
