The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) will operate three projects designed to provide the juvenile and family justice field with state-of-the-art training, technical assistance, and research support. The NCJFCJ's National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) and the Juvenile and Family Law Department (JFLD) developed this proposal collaboratively. The three projects include the National Juvenile Court Data Archive and the Technical Assistance to the Juvenile Court Project (administered by the NCJJ), and the Juvenile Justice and Family Law Training and Technical Assistance Project (administered by the JFLD). Together, these projects provide critical resources necessary to continue the important work of improving system responses to delinquency, and to help facilitate better outcomes for children, youth, families, victims, and communities across the nation.
