Youth Justice Sector common outcomes model

Youth offending is an issue throughout the world. DoView is being used in New Zealand to develop a comprehensive outcomes model for the youth justice sector. This model was developed in a series of three half-day workshops involving representatives from all of the relevant government departments (Justice, Police, Child Youth and Family, Health, etc.). Since the group used a set of outcomes model drawing standards to develop the model it has the potential to be used for a range of purposes such as mapping all youth offending initiatives onto a common set of outcomes, identifying indicators and evaluation questions, identifying priorities, or even guiding outcomes-focused contracting. The exact way in which the model will be used in the future will be decided by the group.
