The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) is seeking applications for its Reducing Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Juvenile Justice Certificate Program, which will be held November 5-9 at Georgetown University. This year, CJJR, partnered with the Center for Children’s Law and Policy, and will help jurisdictions identify the most promising areas for reform at key juvenile justice system decision points, including arrest, referral, diversion, detention, disposition, and post-disposition. The training will also address disparities at those decision points and discuss specific strategies to reduce the over-representation of certain youth populations. As part of the certificate program, participants will develop and implement a capstone project that applies practices learned from the training to a local reform effort that is designed to improve outcomes for system-involved youth in their jurisdictions.
