Applications for Youth in Custody Certificate Program Being Accepted

The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) is accepting applications for its Youth in Custody Certificate Program, to be held June 11-15, 2018, at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. This training is designed for juvenile justice system leaders and partners working to improve outcomes for youth in post-adjudication custody. The curriculum covers critical areas, including culture change and leadership, addressing racial and ethnic disparities, family engagement, assessment, case planning, facility-based education and treatment services, and reentry planning and support. Upon approval of a Capstone Project Proposal initiating or building on local reform efforts, participants receive an Executive Certificate from Georgetown University and join the CJJR Fellows Network of more than 850 individuals. The application deadline is March 2, 2018.
