Center for Juvenile Justice Reform Accepting Applications for Transforming Juvenile Probation Certificate Program

In partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Georgetown University’s Center for Juvenile Justice Reform and the Council of State Governments Justice Center are inviting teams representing state and local juvenile justice jurisdictions to apply for a new program designed to help transform juvenile probation culture and practice.

To be held November 4-8, 2019, in Washington, D.C., the Transforming Juvenile Probation Certificate Program will provide intensive instruction, discussion, and planning to jurisdictions ready to question the purpose and goals of probation. To that end, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers will lead sessions on incorporating practices for equity; youth, family and community engagement; diversion and disposition decisions; the role of the probation officer; and approaches to transformational change.

Participating teams will receive both on-site and virtual technical assistance to develop and implement policies and practices; train staff and stakeholders to promote buy-in and collaboration; and assess, evaluate and sustain progress. As part of the program, each team will also develop a capstone project that lays out a clear action for transforming juvenile probation in their jurisdiction. Once the project is approved, participants will receive an executive certificate from Georgetown University and join CJJR’s network of more than twelve hundred fellows.

The program can accommodate seven teams of up to eight members each. All teams are required to have a chief probation officer, judge, and prosecutor among its members. Other positions, such as a leader of a community-based organization, are recommended.

To learn more about the program, selection criteria, and the application process, see the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform website.

Deadline: July 26, 2019
