THE PROBLEM

Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006 or RA 9344


Approved in October 2006, Republic Act 9344 established a
comprehensive juvenile justice and welfare system in the Philippines. The
law increased the minimum age of criminal responsibility in the country
from nine years old to the current 15 years old. It also seeks to apply the
principle of restorative justice in dealing with the cases of youth
offenders whereas they would be subjected to child-sensitive intervention
and diversion programs rather than sending them to jail. The law believes
that these children shall not be deemed criminal but neglected children
thus, they shall be treated differently from adult criminals.
THE PROBLEM

 Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006 or RA 9344 is being


misunderstood
 There is a gap between the coordination of the respective government
agencies.
 The rights of the children in conflict with the law are hardly observed
 No evident intervention and diversion program in Legazpi City for the
CICL
THE PROBLEM

Currently, the Criminal Code Committee of the Department of


Justice included the lowering of the minimum age of criminal
responsibility (MACR) to age 13 in the revision of the country’s Revised
Penal Code which has been already endorsed in the House of Congress.
WHAT TO DO

Address the problems by means of mass media in the form of a


video documentary that shall provide information regarding juvenile
delinquency and crime and the Philippine juvenile justice and welfare
system for community awareness.
OBJECTIVES

The specific objectives of JOVENES are:


1. Discuss the factors that cause or trigger minors to commit offenses
against the law.
2. Showcase the common cases that involve minor offenders in Legazpi
City.
3. Present the intervention and diversion programs of the Local
Government Unit, City Social Welfare and Development Office and PNP
Women and Children Protection Desk.
4. Discuss the salient points of Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006.
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Behaviourism Theory by J. B Watson


It assumes that behavior is observable and can be correlated with
other observable events . Thus, there are events that precede and follow
behavior. Behaviorism's goal is to explain relationships between
antecedent conditions (stimuli), behavior (responses), and consequences
(reward, punishment, or neutral effect).
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Diffusion of Information Theory by E.M. Rogers


It is a source-dominated theory which is concerned with the
spread of ideas originating from the sources to ultimate users. Diffusion
of Information treats mass media as a means to create awareness and
draw attention as a basis for group discussion.
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Structural-Functionalism Perspective by Falcott Parsons


The theory looks at society as a system of interrelated parts. It
assumes that the majority of society shares the same core values and
appropriate forms of behaviour. It looks at how persistent patterns of
behaviour or social structures function to implement society’s values.
