The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform supports the development of leaders in juvenile justice and related systems of care through our Certificate Programs.

We help them achieve better outcomes for the young people in their care by assisting in the implementation or improvement of a diverse range of juvenile justice reform initiatives that address racial disparities and disproportionality, multi-system collaboration, social service improvement, statutory and court reform, and many other issues. The leaders we train come from across the United States and all over the world, including American Samoa, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Cameroon, Puerto Rico, Red Lake Nation, St. Lucia, and Thailand.
