The tuition for the Youth in Custody Certificate Program is $2,500 per person. Tuition does not include travel, hotel, or incidental expenses, which are the responsibility of the participant.

CJJR tuition subsidies are available for participants with demonstrated financial need. There will also be subsidies available from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Center for Coordinated Assistance to States for teams who show a heightened readiness to utilize the curriculum to undertake changes in their local community. To apply for a subsidy, please submit a Statement of Financial Need with your application to the program and indicate the amount of aid you are requesting.

As many agencies and organizations are facing budget restraints, we strongly urge participants to seek other forms of financial assistance. For example, local, state and regional level foundations are often supportive of this type of training activity and may be able to provide grants to cover the portion of the tuition for which the participant is responsible, as well as travel costs.

For education professionals, staff development activities are an allowable expense of Title I dollars, including Title I, Part D funds. CJJR has reviewed Title I, Part D and it is our belief that the certificate program qualifies as an eligible program since it addresses the staff development needs of educators and coordinators in leadership roles working with neglected, delinquent or at-risk programs. Therefore, CJJR urges education professionals to contact their Neglected and Delinquent State Coordinators or Title I Directors to request approval for the use of Title I funds to support their participation in this program.

Title IV-E of the Child Abuse and Prevention Treatment Act may also support this type of training activity for eligible candidates, as will funds available to states and localities through the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. Again, applicants are encouraged to seek this type of support through their state's administering agency.

The full tuition balance must be paid in full prior to the start of program. Applicants accepted for participation will receive additional information regarding how to make payment.
