Through a partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation and The Council of State Governments Justice Center, the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform has announced the launch of a new certificate program focused on transforming juvenile probation policy and practice. Reflecting the principles and practices outlined in the Transforming Juvenile Probation and Transforming Juvenile Justice Systems to Improve Public Safety and Outcomes for Youth publications, this Georgetown University-based program will provide participating teams with training and intensive technical assistance. This is designed to reorient and restructure fundamental juvenile probation/parole policies and practices in order to improve outcomes for youth and communities.
A request for proposals for the Transforming Juvenile Probation Certificate Program will be released in May, and the trainings will take place November 4–8.
This press release provides further details about the program.
