Alliance provides systemic leadership in the efforts to improve the academic and career/ technical training that delinquent youths receive while in residential placement, and in their home communities upon return.
PACTT has clear standards for this work in residential, day treatment and community-based (non-residential) programs. PACTT provides technical assistance to correctional programs, both out-of-home placements and in the community, to give them the tools to meet the standards. Affiliated agencies have voluntarily agreed to meet standards for providing relevant, high-quality academic and vocational education services to the youth that they serve. These standards are identified as program elements, described below.
An overview of the elements of participation can also be found here: Stakeholder Overview Elements of Participation.
