With support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Center for Coordinated Assistance to States (CCAS) has awarded grants to seven jurisdictions, providing them with the opportunity to participate in the fourth cohort of the Multi-System Collaboration Training and Technical Assistance (MSC-TTA) program. Each selected jurisdiction has exhibited a distinct level of readiness to work in a collaborative manner in their efforts to positively impact at-risk youth in their community.
As part of CCAS, CJJR will work with the program participants for six months to enhance multi-system collaboration in their jurisdictions.
The seven jurisdictions selected are:
- Los Angeles County, California
- City & County of Honolulu, Hawaii
- Marion County, Indiana
- State of Minnesota
- Clermont County, Ohio
- Clackamas County, Oregon
- Alexandria, Virginia
The MSC-TTA program will engage participants in a series of activities focused on identifying existing barriers to partnership development and information sharing, better understanding how youth are served in various systems, acknowledging how agency culture impacts the change process, addressing the role of leadership in advancing cross-systems work, and identifying ways to more effectively partner with and empower youth and families.
