Emerging Adult Resource Guide
By Sangeeta Prasad | August 12, 2021
Stoneleigh Fellow Sangeeta Prasad, in collaboration with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Emerging Adult Initiative, developed a resource directory for justice-involved Emerging Adults.
In order to increase public safety while decreasing economic inequality, systemic racism, and mass incarceration, the criminal system must look at Emerging Adults (18-25) differently than older adults. An age-appropriate approach is supported by research and by data from programs tailored to those who are in this critical stage of brain development.
