Message From the Administrator: Listening to Young People

OJJDP Administrator Liz Ryan focuses on the importance of listening to what youth say they need. Reaching out to young people is the best way to both hold them accountable for their actions and improve outcomes, she says. Her commitment to ensure that the youth voice is solicited, heard, and amplified, is closely linked to fulfilling her three priorities for OJJDP.
