Protecting the Interests of Young Men in the Criminal Justice System

Men who have been in detention, jail, or prison, or otherwise involved in the criminal justice system, tend to be at higher risk for failing to register. The reasons for this are many, but center primarily around misunderstandings and misinformation about the law and how it applies to men in these circumstances. 

Working with professionals in the criminal justice, parole, and re-entry advocacy communities, we have tailored this toolkit to ensure that no man misses out on an opportunity to improve his life because he, or the people who support him, did not know why, when, or how to register with the Selective Service System.

We are always looking for materials that we can add to improve this resource page. If you have ideas for content that you would find useful, please contact the Public and Intergovernmental Affairs Office at 703.605.4100, or e-mail
