Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Private Sector Leaders
November 7–14, 2012
The Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Private Sector Leaders conducted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute is a weeklong program of intensive study designed for those who want to improve outcomes for youth known to the juvenile justice and child welfare systems--youth commonly referred to as "crossover youth." The program is geared toward service providers that work with youth known to the juvenile justice and child welfare systems, but also advocates, academicians, foundation staff and others whose work is closely related to improving service delivery for this population and relationships between the private and public sectors.
Upon completion of the week-long program, participants apply the knowledge they gain via a Capstone Project—a reform agenda they implement in their organization/ community to make a positive impact on the lives of crossover youth. In order to enhance the possibility of implementing cross systems change after returning from the program, applicants from the same jurisdiction are encouraged to apply as “mini-teams.”
Applications for the program being held November 7-14, 2012 are due by July 17, 2012.
