Oregon Youth Authority and Advocacy

Presented by OCADSV with a panel of OYA staff.

Wondering how youth in Oregon experience detention and incarceration, and what happens when they are sexually assaulted while inside? This webinar will provide community-based sexual assault advocates an understanding of Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) systems and services. It will address how youth enter and exit OYA, continuum of services, and differences and similarities between OYA and Department of Corrections (DOC). Opportunities for collaboration, including how advocacy could look by phone and in person, referral processes and MOUs, will also be covered.
