Guam's State Advisory Group (SAG) or otherwise known as the Guam Juvenile Justice Advisory Council (GJJAC) was established as part of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA), legislation that continues to serve as the key federal law on juvenile justice in our nation. As part of the Act, Congress provided for the creation of SAGs. These governor-appointed bodies are tasked with ensuring that their states comply with the JJDPA’s four core protections for youth involved with the system. The groups are given the authority to help set programmatic goals, to help guide policy, and to administer federal funds received through the JJDPA.
