Online Courses To Offer Tribal Juvenile Justice Code Training

September 2, 2014

Tribal Youth logoOn October 6, 8, and 10, 2014, at 3 p.m. ET, OJJDP's Tribal Youth Training and Technical Assistance Center will present the online course “Developing and Revising Juvenile Codes.” This three-part course is for tribal communities seeking to establish or improve their juvenile justice codes for responding to delinquent youth and status offenders. Sessions will focus on the elements of a model tribal juvenile justice code, highlighting how it applies to Native youth victimization and trauma, cultural values, and traditional practices.

Each session is 1.5 hours. Participants who attend all three sessions will receive a certificate upon completion. Registration information will be available soon.
