Training Resources

The Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice is committed to providing helpful resources to juvenile justice professionals and others interested in the juvenile justice system.  

National Girls Institute: The  National Girls Institute of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) conducted  64 listening sessions across the United States to hear from at-risk or justice system-involved girls, their parents/caregivers, and key professional and community stakeholders across the continuum of services. One key goal was to assess the training, technical assistance, and informational needs of state, tribal, and local entities serving girls and their families. This report details the results and implications of the listening sessions. For more information, click here.  To see the report, click here
