Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $500,000)

The overarching goal of this project is to increase the capacity of State and local collaboratives to establish and manage effective multidisciplinary, multiagency information sharing systems to improve coordination, decision-making, and services to at-risk youth and juvenile offenders and their families. In Phase One, the design and delivery of the Juvenile Information Sharing (JIS) trainings represented two key facets: (1) a two-level instructional team approach to improve coordinated service delivery to delinquent and at-risk youth, and (2) the identification of policies, practices and technology that impact the delivery of JIS. Phase Two focused on the development of national JIS guidelines. The current phase will focus on testing and implementing the guidelines to promote integration in the most affected areas, e.g., partnership building, confidentiality and privacy, and technology.
