Additional Information:
The National Center for Youth in Custody (NC4YC) invites you to participate in our next installment in a series of webinars focusing on Conditions of Confinement.

Few argue the importance of education in a youth’s life, but many fail to recognize the importance of a robust, engaging and quality education program in a confinement setting as playing a critical role in reconnecting educationally disenfranchised students to successful educational experiences. How that happens and what constitutes a quality confinement education program is the subject of this webinar. Panelists will address topics such as curriculum, teaching and learning, assessment, educational program design and structure, student re-entry and transition strategies. In addition, panelists will provide insight on how quality education programs contribute to safe and healthy conditions of confinement and positive facility culture.
