“CJJR's Diversion Certificate Program was of great value to our CT team: affording opportunity to hear how other communities and jurisdictions are planning and implementing a variety of diversion efforts that may also inform our project, experiencing a variety of excellent presenters with diverse expertise especially on screening and assessment for diversion, and finally for the support and assistance provided before and during the program. We are confident that we are moving forward with a viable capstone project while fostering collaboration among our state agencies and stakeholders in this youth justice reform effort.”
