TRANSFORMING IDJJ:

A 21st Century Illinois Transformation Model

The 21st Century Illinois Transformation Model is a plan that will transform the state's juvenile justice system. The Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), in partnership with the Justice, Equity, and Opportunity Initiative (JEO), has utilized decades of evidence from across the country, and within its own system, to create the plan with the goal of achieving meaningful transformation, better youth outcomes, and increased community safety.

The Model focuses on reducing the harm of incarceration by transitioning youth to smaller, regional residential centers, investing significantly in community wraparound support and intervention services for justice-involved youth, and increasing financial support for victim services in communities that are disproportionately impacted by violence.

IDJJ Director Mueller and her team provided an update on the progress of the Transformation on November 1, 2023.
