Two weeks after a child enters the juvenile system each child should be given a complete personal profile to discover each child's weaknesses, strengths, fears, likes, dislikes and if any goals in life. Therefore you know how and when and how to tear them down, when and how to build them, educate them in an area or areas that interest them and eventually reshape their lives for the betterment of themselves and society.
Children need guidance, love, acceptance and approval from respected adults something most do not get from home. While some may not accept the help, others simply go on to the prison system after turning 18 for harder crimes ""all"" need breaking down and building up (but to a degree). Why heck even the military uses this program although to a much wider degree to reshape people entering their ranks. I would encourage you though to try this with small unsegregated groups where each child does not feel lost in a much larger unsegregated populous. This would also create networking within the group and just perhaps some of these children may feel inclined to bear their souls which might unburden their hearts for a chance at a more relaxed child and perhaps a more receptive child of new things to learn and open up to.

I feel that all Juvenile Justice offenders should have thorough evaluations to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Modifications should be structured to strengthen the weaknesses and continue an education program that is suitable for the Juvenile. It is important for someone to have a positive connection with the youth in order to counsel for a better productive positive future with periodic follow up.

Hire an out of "company" researcher to conduct a study. I would first gather information about each the department as a whole by researching information given on web sites such as Indeed and Glassdoor. I would then sit down with people in each department at random levels and discuss what they do, what problems they encounter and what part of the job is enjoyable. The information gathered from this research will help to guide your study. Create a hypothesis about this workplace utilizing information found in research "problem areas" and create a likert-type scale that includes a few "positive area" questions as well. Do an in house, anonymous survey (generally a total of 9 questions- 6 on problem areas and 3 on positive areas). This type of survey is best done with an "out of house" company in order to ensure non-bias results. In order to get your best results, give something in return to those who participate ($10 gift card). Then you do an out of house survey, by surveying previous employees Same questions and add an essay question to the end to garner any extra information. At this point you enter and analyze your data accordingly. Use your research to implement better employment tactics.
