The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) is seeking applications for its Supporting the Well-Being of System-Involved LGBTQ Youth Certificate Program, which will be held October 22–26 at Georgetown University. This year, CJJR has partnered with the National Center for Lesbian Rights and Ceres Policy Research to provide training focused on effective policy and practice reforms that promote positive youth development and take a holistic approach to addressing the needs of LGBTQ youth in child-serving systems. As part of the certificate program, participants will develop and implement a capstone project that applies practices learned during the training to a local reform effort that is designed to improve outcomes for system-involved youth in their jurisdictions.
