Avoiding the Pipeline to Prison

Alternatives for Youths

prison-pipeline-hero-06132017.jpgThe Pipeline to Prison refers to the policies and practices that push the nation’s youth, especially ethnic and racial minorities, out of the classrooms through suspension and expulsion, and onto the streets, leading them all too often into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. It also includes those youth who enter the juvenile justice system as a result of a criminal act. NCRC interrupts this pipeline, redirecting young people to productive and positive life paths. It helps them understand the impact of their actions and allows them to make appropriate restitution.

When students have misconceptions of those outside their group it can be difficult to communicate. Through communication and diversity training, the Campus Civility Program bolsters the students’ ability and confidence to engage with others.
