The Welfare and Justice for Children and Youth minor provides students the opportunity to develop professional skills for working with youth across multiple systems. Increasing knowledge of children and youth’s development, especially brain development and the impact of trauma on development, a growing focus on crossover youth and the growing use of a balanced and restorative approach across many social institutions (e.g., schools, court diversion, prevention/intervention/diversion programs and institutional/correctional settings) has left many agencies that serve children and youth challenged to hire qualified individuals. To make a difference in the lives of some of the most at-risk children and youth in our society today, agencies need qualified staff equipped with the necessary skills to effectively engage and support this unique population.
