Request for Applications Seeks Jurisdictions for Multi-System Improvement Training

The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, in partnership with OJJDP’s Center for Coordinated Assistance to States, has issued a request for applications from jurisdictions seeking to engage in multi-system improvement efforts. The Multi-System Collaboration Training and Technical Assistance Program supports jurisdictions that are interested in developing a sound infrastructure to promote multi-system approaches to serving at-risk youth, youth who are involved with the justice system, and their families. The Center will provide onsite and distance-learning training and technical assistance to a cohort of as many as four jurisdictions—at no cost to the sites—to help them identify gaps in policy and practice, enhance information sharing capacities, explore how key decision points impact youth, and develop an evaluation strategy for tracking system- and youth-level outcomes. Deadline:  March 16, 2018
