The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy is accepting applications for two initiatives designed to help juvenile justice agencies and partners improve outcomes for youth, families, staff, and communities:

  • Evidence-Based Decision-Making in Juvenile Justice Certificate Program. This new program, hosted in partnership with Vanderbilt University's Peabody Research Institute, will provide juvenile justice practitioners with instruction on how to use the appropriate tools, including the Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol, to develop an environment that supports comprehensive, evidence-based decision-making. The program will run from August 7 to 11, 2017. Apply by May 5, 2017.

  • Youth in Custody Practice Model initiative. This new program, offered in partnership with the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators, will help juvenile correctional agencies and facility providers implement a comprehensive approach for serving youth in residential care. The 18-month training and technical assistance period for this second round of the initiative will begin September 1, 2017. Apply by May 19, 2017.
