Model Policy: Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Intersex Youth in Confinement Facilities

"The recommendations in the model policy are grounded in a series of guiding principles that embody emerging professional consensus promoting gender affirming approaches in youth serving systems. The principles counter common misconceptions about gender and provide a framework for accommodating the needs of youth across the full spectrum of gender identity, gender expression, and intersex status. Agencies and facilities can expressly incorporate these principles in their own policies and/or training on the implementation of their policies."
