Information Sharing Certificate Program
October 1–4, 2012
The Information Sharing Certificate Program is designed to enable leaders in the juvenile justice, child welfare, education, behavioral health and other child serving fields to overcome information sharing challenges that prevent the communication and coordination that is necessary to adequately serve youth known across multiple systems of care. The target audience for the Information Sharing Certificate Program is public and private sector leaders working in the juvenile justice, child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, education and other related systems of care who seek to improve information sharing in their communities.
The program is conducted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute, in partnership with the Juvenile Law Center (JLC), and is supported by funding from the MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change: Systems Reform in Juvenile Justice Initiative. The program provides a venue through which leaders can increase their knowledge about information sharing, develop action plans (Capstone Projects) for reform, and receive technical assistance to break through barriers they encounter when implementing the reforms.
Applications are due by June 28, 2012.
