Certificate Program on Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice

The application window for the 2014 Multi-System Integration Program is now open through July 25, 2014. The Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare: Multi-System Integration Certificate Program is a weeklong program of intensive study designed for those who want to improve outcomes for youth known to multiple systems of care by improving multi-systems integration and collaboration.

The program is conducted by the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, in collaboration with the National Catholic School of Social Service at Catholic University of America.

Feedback from participants of earlier certification programs has been overwhelmingly positive for both the content and the instructors. On anonymous, open-ended survey questions, some participants responded with the following:

  • "The entire program gave me so much knowledge that I can bring back to my staff and department. I have the ideas and tools to begin the process of implementing the crossover youth model."
  • "Great use of multiple strategies to create opportunities for learning. It was nice to have presenters with content expertise and strong presentation skills."
  • "The speakers were very engaging. I'm bringing back ideas to my jurisdiction. The program has really made me look at decision points through a different lens."

Detailed information about the certificate program, application instructions, and information about tuition and available subsidies are available on the program's website:
