The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University, in partnership with the Juvenile Law Center, will host the inaugural Information Sharing Certificate Program on October 1-4, 2012 in Washington, DC.
This new program, supported with funding from the MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change Initiative, is designed to enable leaders in the juvenile justice, child welfare, education, behavioral
health and other child serving fields to overcome information sharing challenges that prevent the communication and coordination that is necessary to more fully serve youth known across multiple systems of care. Upon completion of the intensive three-day learning experience, participants apply the knowledge they gain through the development and implementation of a Capstone Project –an action agenda they undertake in their organization/community to initiate or enhance information sharing efforts.
Faculty for the program is comprised of information sharing, juvenile justice and child welfare subject matter experts from across the country who will deliver a curriculum designed to increase participants’ ability to solve real-life problems when they return home.
