Application Deadline: August 21, 2015  


    RED 2

  We are now accepting applications for our 8th Annual Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program, which will be held from October 29-November 4, 2015 at Georgetown University.

Through a week of intensive study, the Multi-System Integration Certificate Program will instruct participants on how to improve outcomes for youth known to both the child welfare and juvenile justice system (i.e. crossover youth) through a multi-disciplinary approach that highlights integration and collaboration.
The purpose of the program is to bring together current and future leaders to increase their knowledge about multi-system reform efforts related to crossover youth, improve the operation of their organizations in serving this population, provide an opportunity for the development of collaborative leadership skills, and create a mutually supportive network of individuals across the country committed to systems reform.
The program highlights CJJR’s Crossover Youth Practice Model...

This program provides an intensive learning experience to prepare school and district staff, court professionals, juvenile justice, law enforcement, and other child-serving community leaders with the knowledge and understanding necessary to address the immediate and long term needs of students known to, or at risk of entering, the juvenile justice system.
The goals of this certificate program are to promote an ongoing engagement in school among youth at risk, re-engage students who have been disconnected and improve academic outcomes for all, and create safe and supportive learning environments without excluding and forcing out those students who are most at risk for negative life outcome.
The application deadline is July 10, 2015.

Nonprofit Steps Up for Crossover Youth in Los Angeles County  

clclogo2Driven by research highlighting the inadequacy of Los Angeles County’s treatment of crossover youth, Children’s Law Center of California, a nonprofit law firm representing children in foster care, launched the Crossover Advocacy and Resource Effort (CARE). CARE is a grant-funded pilot program which aims to realize the unfulfilled promise of California’s Assembly Bill 129: to ensure crossover youth are afforded the services they need from both juvenile justice and child welfare agencies. The CARE project strives to make this a reality by facilitating relationships between youth and agency workers and bridging the communication gaps between local agencies.
The CARE Unit's main grant is from the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR), whose Crossover Youth Practice Model focuses on addressing the unique needs of youth that fluctuate between and are known to the child welfare and juvenile justice system (i.e. crossover youth). Through the CARE Unit and the CYPM, CJJR seeks to help jurisdictions ensure that practices are consistent and resources are shared between child-serving systems to positively impact the lives of crossover youth.

"I cannot begin to tell you how rewarding it was to attend the [2014 Multi-System Integration] program. While I have worked with members of my team in the past, the nine days spent together as a team solidified and strengthened our relationships with one another and our commitment to improving the lives of the children and families in Wayne County."

- Michelle Rowser
Director of Operations, StarrVista


"Attending the [2014] Multi-System Integration Certificate Program provided our cross systems community stakeholders the unique opportunity to remove ourselves from home turf and to jointly and equally share in learning a common language and better understand our common moral imperative to improve outcomes for our most vulnerable youth
Each of our perspectives was broadened as were our respect for each other and the systems we serve in."

-Sedgwick County, Kansas Team
