The cities of Boston and Los Angeles hosted a group of fourteen individuals from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for a ten-day study-visit. The participants included community leaders, educators, representatives from law enforcement, legal advocates, and youth rehabilitation experts from Ireland and from Northern Ireland.  The program’s seminars and visits engaged the participants in a discussion with their American counterparts that examined alternatives to incarceration, intervention strategies, rehabilitation and mentoring programs, life skills training etc.  These interactions also provided the group an opportunity to exchange best-practice strategies and to create professional networks with each other and with their U.S. hosts.
