This study has investigated some of the elements that influence recidivism within crossover youth of color in the juvenile justice system across the United States from the perspective of youth professionals focusing on programs and services. The information is essential to professionals working in the criminal legal system since it provides insight into the factors that impact youth recidivism in foster care throughout the criminal legal system. The risks of juvenile offenders returning to illegal activities upon incarceration are significant. To help curb recidivism, the findings have prompted individuals, policy makers, social workers, shareholders, etc., to do something but think about what learning their opinions could realistically do. ¶ Understanding how recidivism for youth in foster care falls within the purview of social work concerns is necessary to address the problem and help adolescents before they fall through the cracks. In the United States, many youths who age out of foster care end up in jail, homeless with no family or friends, or worse. There has been a lot of speculation on what causes these social problems, one thing we can do as social workers is to understand what sets these problems into motion so we can better prevent them from happening. The research which was research was classified as exploratory since it helped in increasing knowledge or understanding. My research was conducted through a quantitative research method. My survey was distributed through Qualtrics to all youth professionals. In the solicitation, the researcher describes the study's goals, risks, benefits, and requirements for participation and permission. Research participation was voluntary, and participants were free to discontinue the study. ¶ This study led to findings that are helpful to social workers since it equips them with knowledge of what youth professionals perceive to be factors impacting recidivism among youthful offenders. Understanding these factors allows them to develop approaches and strategic plans to reduce the reoffending rate.
