NRRC: Juvenile Justice Program Deadlines Approaching

Center for Juvenile Justice Reform Certificate Program Application Deadlines Approaching

The application deadlines for the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform’s 2012 Certificate Programs are approaching. CJJR is offering three Certificate Programs at Georgetown University, in Washington, DC:

  • Information Sharing Certificate Program, October 1-4, 2012 (final application deadline is June 28, 2012)
  • Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Public Sector Leaders, October 10-17, 2012 (final application deadline is June 21, 2012)
  • Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Private Sector Leaders, November 7-14, 2012 (final application deadline is July 17, 2012)
The Certificate Programs are periods of intensive study designed for organization and system leaders working with youth known to the juvenile justice and child welfare systems—youth commonly referred to as "crossover youth." The programs utilize a multi-systems and multi-disciplinary approach that focus on policies, programs and practices designed to improve outcomes for this population. The certificate programs are ideal for public and private sector leaders working in the juvenile justice, child welfare, judiciary, behavioral health, education and other systems that serve crossover youth. Upon completion of the program, participants apply the knowledge they gain via a Capstone Project—a reform agenda they implement in their organization/community. In order to enhance the potential for implementing cross-systems change after returning from the program, applicants from the same jurisdiction or organization are encouraged to apply as “mini-teams.”
