January 13, 2014
The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University‘s McCourt School of Public Policy is pleased to announce that the application window for the 2014 Youth in Custody Certificate Program is open now through February 28, 2014.
This program shines a brighter light on the serious, high-risk juvenile offender population, and helps leaders begin or accelerate systemic change to improve outcomes for youth in custody. CJJR, the Missouri Department of Social Services’ Division of Youth Services, the Council of State Governments Justice Center, and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s National Center for Youth in Custody are partnering to offer this professional development opportunity.
The target audience for the Youth in Custody 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 that serve youth in the custody of the juvenile justice system.
Please visit the CJJR website where you will find detailed information about the program, including how to apply, tuition, and available subsidies for those with financial need. Again, applications are due by February 28, 2014. Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call CJJR at (202) 687-2749.
