The FY 2019 Addressing the Training Needs of Juvenile Prosecutors program will fund state agencies responsible for administering, managing, or overseeing the training, education, and professional development needs of juvenile prosecutors and their support staff. The juvenile prosecutor's office has a need for legal training because of the specialized nature of juvenile and family law. This funding will allow states to develop or supplement existing training and/or professional development that is tailored to the unique needs and challenges related to juvenile prosecution. States will be able to use funding to address a wide range of training, resources, and professional development needs that will assist juvenile prosecutors and their support staff (including victim witness support coordinators) with prosecuting juvenile delinquency cases.
