The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Juvenile Law Center and the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, will hold the 3rd Annual Information Sharing Certificate Program, December 8-11, 2014 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.
The Information Sharing Certificate Program is designed to enable leaders in youth-serving systems to overcome information sharing challenges, while respecting laws and other provisions that protect the privacy and other rights of youth and their families. The program included modules on a variety of topics structured around information sharing including: state and federal confidentiality laws; individual case planning and decision making; law, policy, and program development; program evaluation and performance measurement; and technological solutions. The program concluded with a session on leadership and messaging for culture change, and a panel of expert practitioners who shared their experience in implementing reform efforts in their own jurisdictions.
Following the program, participants began development of their Capstone Projects – reform agendas to implement in their jurisdictions to initiate and continue efforts to overcome information sharing challenges.
