Hello,

My name is Jacob Metzger. I work for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. I am e-mailing you in regards to a scared straight type of program I want to start at my institution. I was hoping you might have some kind of resource that could help me with legal issues, liability issues and solutions to each of those. I was also wanting inquire as to see if you knew of any other agency I could contact to get some ideas. If you could get back with me I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Contact: Jacob.Metzger@odrc.state.oh.us

NCCHC. Has a lot of articles on many correctional topics including Juveniles. But, I highly recommend asking an Early Childhood Education based College for any research they have done.
In my own experience, I find it is rarely too late. Education is the key. Exposing these juveniles to an education that they may have never been able to receive in a public classroom or on the streets that gives them a broad look at the world
Helps them. Egocentricity may hinder their development. Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology and the Arts help them understand themselves and others.
I use to tutor at Juvenile Hall befor becoming a Jail and Prison nurse. Their world changed for them after they got the self-confidence they needed after passing the GED or High School equivalency. They needed to feel they weren’t a failure. They needed to feel they belonged to humanity. They needed to feel they belonged and could help others.
