The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University, in partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Protection’s Center for Coordinated Assistance to States (CCAS), is accepting applications for its Multi-System Collaboration Training and Technical Assistance Program. The program will support up to four jurisdictions—at no cost to the sites—seeking to engage in multi-system improvement efforts to serve youth in the justice system and their families.
On behalf of CCAS, CJJR will provide on-site and distance learning training as well as technical assistance to help participating sites identify gaps in policy and practice, enhance information sharing capacities, explore how key decision points impact the trajectory of the youth currently being served by the program, develop an evaluation strategy for tracking system- and youth-level outcomes, and sustain long-term system change. Multi-disciplinary teams from states, territories, tribal communities, local governments, and community agencies and organizations—including staff from child welfare, juvenile justice, education, behavioral health, and other child-serving agencies—are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due by October 1, 2018. An informational webinar about this program will be held on Sept. 11 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
