[Research Report] Positive Youth Justice: Framing Justice Interventions Using the Concepts of Positive Youth Development
Butts, Jeffrey A., Gordon Bazemore, & Aundra Saa Meroe (2010). Positive Youth Justice--Framing Justice Interventions Using the Concepts of Positive Youth Development. Washington, DC: Coalition for Juvenile Justice.

Unfortunately, few programs draw on PYD principles, often for very good reasons. The premise of this report is that PYD could, and should be adapted for justice-involved youth.
