Beware – since juvenile records are available to the public, many employers and landlords may not understand the charges on the record are juvenile, not adult charges

Emphasize how you’ve made better choices since, and focus on your positive qualitiesIf you must explain, be very brief (few details) and avoid blaming othersSometimes it’s hard to talk about past events — practice with a friend or mentor to make sure you feel comfortableGet a letter of recommendation from someone who can assure the employer or college that you are a good candidate
