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.”

The events at Japan's nuclear power reactors following the earthquake and subsequent tsunami have important implications for the U.S. nuclear energy industry and state policymakers. Experts from the Nuclear Energy InstituteJoe Pollock, executive director of Fukushima coordination, and Marshall Cohen, senior director, state and local government affairs, will update state policymakers on the steps the U.S. nuclear energy industry is taking to ensure that U.S. reactors could respond to events that may challenge safe operation. They also will provide an outlook on nuclear power, discuss the current status of nuclear-related policies in the U.S. and provide an update on the status of moving nuclear waste to volunteer storage sites.



Dear BEMA members (All):

Our membership reach is expanding not only within the U.S. but throughout the world.

An International member of BEMA that has completed a masters program in engineering crisis management at George Washington University is in search of a full-time position in the U.S. or Caribbean Basin in emergency management but due to two factors running into a Catch 22 situation.
Experience, and U.S. citizenship for positions being advertised.   If any member has knowledge of a position available that would provide some full-time employment even a waiver on the U.S. citizenship requirement would help.

Send me any information, or I could forward our member resume to you and put you indirect contact with the member.

Job searching doesn't end until the first pay check is received, then the search starts again.
