Proposed approaches may include conducting a comprehensive, independent assessment of detention facilities and community-based services to inform and develop wraparound interventions for youth offenders; improving coordination and establishing referral networks with Moroccan institutional partners and civil society to ensure access to services and post-release reintegration for Moroccan youth; supporting advocacy for reforms impacting juvenile justice and youth detention; and building civil society capacity to independently monitor detention facilities that hold youth to ensure international standards are effectively applied in detention centers and prisons.
