A workshop for policy makers and foundations presented by the Sorenson Impact Center and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. 
This afternoon session is open to all Winter Innovation Summit attendees. 

State and local governments, their elected officials, and the public and private funders that support communities share an interest in reducing the number of youth involved in the criminal justice system. Each year, the United States incurs an estimated $8–$21 billion in long-term costs for the confinement of young people.[1] The outcomes for these youth are far from optimal. Youth who spend time incarcerated have lower educational attainment, stunted life-time earnings, and are often victims of sexual violence. And they often leave detention facilities for only a short time, escalating their involvement in the criminal justice system. While 40 to 60 percent of juvenile delinquents stop offending by early adulthood, for youth who continue to commit crimes, these adult crimes are increasingly severe.[2]

Workshop Agenda
Pay for Performance (P4P) provisions in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and Pay for Success (PFS) provisions in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provide flexibility for local jurisdictions to use formula funding for outcome based payments to improve outcomes for justice involved youth. However, we have not yet seen communities take advantage of blending these funding streams in an outcomes funding model targeting this population.

Our goal for this session is to ensure communities have access to new tools and financial resources that can lead to concrete and short-term action.
