Moving from Research to Policy and Practice to Improve the Lives of Youth

Posted on February 13, 2017

The fifth annual McCourt School of Public Policy’s LEAD (Leadership. Evidence. Analysis. Debate.) Conference, Moving from Research to Policy and Practice to Improve the Lives of Youth, will be held at Georgetown University on April 6-7, 2017.

Join us during “Cherry Blossom Season” in the nation’s capital as we bring together a national group of policymakers, practitioners, researchers, educators, judicial officials, community leaders, family members, foundation representatives and others to explore cutting-edge innovations in child-serving fields. The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform is hosting the event in celebration of its 10-year anniversary. Over the course of two days the conference will examine current research across systems of care and how to best apply it to develop and implement sound policies and practices that meet the needs of at-risk youth and their families.
