New Juvenile Justice Certificate Program for Local Leaders
Concerned about juvenile justice, child welfare, mental health, substance abuse and other systems of care that serve juvenile justice-involved youth? Apply now for the 2015 Youth in Custody Certificate Program. Applications are due by April 17, 2015.
City leaders have an important role to play in the re-integration of juvenile offenders into their neighborhoods and communities, and a very real concern for the long-term outcomes for these youth. This certificate program is designed to shine a light on the serious, high-risk juvenile offender population, and help public and private sector leaders begin or accelerate systemic changes to improve outcomes for youth in custody. The Youth in Custody Certificate Program will be held July 6-10, 2015 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
This program is part of the very successful and popular collection of juvenile justice certificate programs conducted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, with support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Center for Coordinated Assistance to States.
