As we begin to leave winter behind, we are excited about all the opportunities coming up this spring to collaborate with our partners. The application windows are now open for many of our Certificate Programs, but these opportunities are closing soon, so we encourage you to apply now.

Supporting System-Involved LGBTQ Youth Header

Partnering with the National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Ceres Policy Research, CJJR’s virtual Supporting the Well-Being of System-Involved LBGTQ Youth Certificate Program will be hosted April 1-4. Participants will engage with policy and practice reforms that promote positive youth development and take a holistic approach to addressing the needs of system-involved LGBTQ youth, ultimately preventing these youth’s unnecessary involvement in the youth justice system.

Transforming Youth Probation Header

The Transforming Juvenile Probation Certificate Program, developed in partnership between CJJR and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, will be held on June 10-14, 2024 in Washington D.C. It is a four-day period of rigorous instruction, discussion, and planning for jurisdictions that seek to fundamentally transform their approach to probation to improve public safety and outcomes for youth in the youth justice system.

Advancing Racial Justice and Equity Header

The Advancing Racial Justice and Equity in Youth Legal Systems Certificate Program will be held on May 13-17, 2024 in Washington DC. It is an intensive week-long professional development opportunity designed to support state and local jurisdictions in their efforts to reduce racial and ethnic inequities in their systems of care, particularly the youth legal system.
