The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) and the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA), will provide technical assistance to up to three agencies to implement the new Youth in Custody Practice Model.

The initiative assists state and county juvenile correctional agencies in establishing a comprehensive service delivery approach for youth in residential care.

CJJR, CJCA, and a team of experts will provide training and technical assistance to put research-based principles into practice and improve outcomes for youth, families, staff, and communities.

The initiative focuses on these key areas:

  • Case planning.
  • Facility-based services (e.g., education, behavioral health, behavior management, rehabilitative programming)
  • Transition/reentry.
  • Community-based services


You can find more information about the initiative here. A Letter of Interest must be submitted by January 8, 2016. Applications are due by February 8, 2016.
