Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $1,222,329)

OJJDP's FY 2010 Juvenile Drug Courts Training and Technical Assistance Program seeks to build the capacity of state and local jurisdictions to implement best practices for drug court programs. The goal of the Juvenile Drug Court Training and Technical Assistance Program is to build the capacity of states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to maintain, and enhance existing drug courts for substance-abusing juvenile offenders. OJJDP is seeking a provider to deliver training and technical assistance (TTA) to juvenile drug courts about how to implement the 16 Strategies of Effective Juvenile Drug Courts (hereafter referred to as the Strategies) and other juvenile drug court best practices.
This program is authorized by 42 USC 3797u-8.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) Alcohol and Other Drug Division of the Family Law Department will deliver assessment, training, technical assistance, and performance measurement to multidisciplinary juvenile drug court teams on evidence-based and developmentally appropriate services that will enhance, maintain, and expand program operation, improve team cohesiveness, and increase adherence to program design based on the 16 Strategies program model for juvenile drug courts. The project will also encourage program institutionalization and support improved outcomes for juvenile drug court involved youth and their families. Data will be collected to evaluate the project's impact throughout the jurisdictions, and to use the information to generate additional support from the communities at large. To evaluate the regional and national training events NCJFCJ will conduct a mixed quantitative and qualitative training evaluation. CA/NCF
