in Baltimore City as compared to their peers in other parts of the state. To the extent that this step serves as a procedural safeguard between a young person and the doors of secure detention in other regions, it should also be available for the young people of Baltimore City. Additionally, operating according to a principle of presumptive diversion, conducting the DRAI should not be the default for all youth. Third, stakeholders expressed concern about the availability of programming and skill-building opportunities for youth held in detention, particularly young people who are charged as adults who stay at the facility for long periods of time. As noted above, it is laudable that officials have made changes to realign open bed capacity at the BCJJC to more effectively serve youth charged as adults in the Circuit Court. This move has undoubtedly spared hundreds of Baltimore’s young people from the grave dangers to safety and well-being that young people face when they are incarcerated with adults, including high rates of physical assault, sexual abuse, isolation, and suicide. There is no question that the BCJJC is the better place to hold young people charged as adults. However, for those youth who stay at the facility for many months and those who will face significant barriers to reentry once released, many stakeholders felt that more could be done in detention to equip those young people with new skills and tools that the can use when they return to the community. There are programs doing this in detention at the present time. For example, Baltimore Youth Arts works with young people in detention to provide mentorship and skill-building in artistic and creative expression while at the facility and upon a young person’s release. However, almost all stakeholder interviewed on this topic felt that more could be done to make more productive use of young people’s time in detention, particularly those youth who are charged as adults. There do seem to be opportunities to introduce new and more structured and intentional skill-building programs focused on youth who spend longer lengths of time at the BCJJC. For example, the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center in Chicago, Illinois, has created a barbershop within its facility where young people work under the supervision of professional barbers and have the opportunity to learn their barber’s license while at the facility. Young people in other facilities also have opportunities to participate in other licensing and credentialing programs, such as ServSafe and OSHA 10-hour courses, that can provide helpful certifications to young people upon release when looking for employment opportunities.>GET ANSWER
