Event Dates

During this session, the Tribal Youth Resource Center will explore different strategies for staff to advocate on behalf of youth participants and Juvenile Healing to Wellness Courts (JHWC) programming efforts.

Our guests will discuss JHWC staff involvement in hiring processes, connecting with cultural programming in the planning process, networking with state and county justice systems, positive marketing within the community, and training that can emphasize staff’s willingness to expand efforts to solidify the JHWC’s position within the community.

We’ll also explore making connections with higher education as well as employment services to assist participants after graduation from the JHWC.
