The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Juvenile Law Center and the National League of Cities, is accepting applications for its Juvenile Diversion Certificate Program to be held December 15-18, 2015, in Washington, DC. This program will help current and future leaders strengthen their diversion efforts and reduce the use of formal processing and incarceration, improve public safety, avoid wasteful spending, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and limit the collateral consequences youth encounter through exposure to the juvenile justice system.

Apply by September 18, 2015.

CJJR will host a free webinar on August 12, 2015, from 2 to 3 p.m. ET that will provide an overview of the certificate program. Click here to register. This webinar is part of a five-part series through OJJDP's Center for Coordinated Assistance to States.
