Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Public Sector Leaders
October 10–17, 2012
The Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program for Public Sector Leaders conducted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute is a weeklong program of intensive study designed for those who want to improve outcomes for youth known to the juvenile justice and child welfare systems--youth commonly referred to as "crossover youth." This program is geared towards directors, managers and other senior level professionals in the juvenile justice, child welfare, mental health, education and other related systems of care. Advocates, academicians, foundation staff and others who work almost exclusively with the public sector will also benefit from attending this program.
Upon completion of the week-long program, participants apply the knowledge they gain via a Capstone Project—a reform agenda they implement in their organization/ community to make a positive impact on the lives of crossover youth. In order to enhance the possibility of implementing cross systems change after returning from the program, applicants from the same jurisdiction are encouraged to apply as “mini-teams.”
Applications for the program being held October 10-17, 2012 are due by June 21, 2012.
