Mi Hermana’s Keeper: A Toolkit of Promising Practices for Juvenile Justice Prevention Programs Supporting Latina Youth

This toolkit includes a literature review of why system-involved Latina youth need support, nine program- and system-level recommendations, an action checklist, and feedback from Latina youth, caregivers, and stakeholders. This resource was developed based on a study of the Family Keys Program, an Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Best Practice Model that Southwest Key Programs created to keep status offenders from becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
