We wish you the best as you navigate the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on your daily life and work. These are undoubtedly difficult times for everyone, including all who work on behalf of youth, families and communities.
In the face of these challenges, supporting one another becomes all the more important. To this end, if CJJR can assist your efforts in any way going forward, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
In light of current events, we did want to inform you that we have decided to postpone several of our programs, including the Length of Stay Policy Academy and Supporting the Wellbeing of System-Involved LGBTQ Youth Certificate Program. We are also postponing this year’s Janet Reno Forum (originally scheduled for July 13-14, 2020) as well as our Youth in Custody Certificate Program (originally scheduled for July 20-24, 2020). While disappointing, we believe this is the best course of action given public health considerations.
In the coming weeks, we will be in touch with more information about the re-scheduling of these convenings and the CJJR calendar of programs overall. All those who registered for the Janet Reno Forum will receive a full refund and all Certificate Program applicants and participants will receive information regarding next steps.
Thanks for your understanding, and as always, your partnership. As we continue to serve youth, families, and communities during these trying times, let’s remember to take care of ourselves and each other.
