Press release from the Coalition for Juvenile Justice:
CJJ is seeking presentation proposals for its April 26-29, 2008 conference, “Investing in Our Children: Emerging Reform Efforts in Juvenile Justice.” The event will take place in Washington, D.C.
Presentations at the conference will showcase juvenile justice and delinquency prevention reform efforts at the local, state and national levels which effectively demonstrate that investing in prevention, early intervention and a full continuum of community-based services yields positive results for children, families and communities.
Reform efforts can be emerging (1-3 years) or sustained (3+ years) and should fall into one or more of the following four tracks:
• Prevention Planning and Programming
• Early Intervention and Community/Family-Linked Services
• Model Juvenile Justice System Services
• Community/Family Based Re-entry Services
All interested parties and JJDPA State Advisory Groups (SAGs) are encouraged to respond. Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. EST, February 15, 2008.
