The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform's Request for Applications for the Youth in Custory Certificate Program
The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) recently released a Request for Applications for the Youth in Custody Certificate Program, which will be held at Georgetown University on July 20-24, 2020. The training is designed to help juvenile justice system leaders and child-serving partners improve outcomes for youth in custodial settings. Following the program, upon approval of a Capstone Project Proposal initiating or building on local reform efforts, participants receive an Executive Certificate from Georgetown University and join CJJR's Network of over 1,300 Fellows.
The curriculum covers critical areas including leadership and changing culture, racial and ethnic disparities, family engagement, assessment, case planning, facility-based education and treatment services, and reentry planning and support. The program will also include a tour of Washington DC's New Beginnings Youth Development Center and will highlight services and approaches that are research-based, developmentally appropriate and strength-based, family-centered, individually focused and predicated on validated assessments, data-informed and outcome-driven, and culturally responsive.
Applications are due by Friday, April 24, 2020.
