    CJCA Webinar Announcement:

    Please register for Positive Youth Outcomes Committee Education Series: Policy Implications on Jan. 24, 2019 4:00 PM EDT at:


    On January 24th 2019 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. (EDT) the CJCA PYO Committee will host a webinar based on the PYO Educational Webinar Series on Policy Implications

    CJCA has sponsored a year- long educational series intended to support the CJCA membership in delivering high quality educational services to the youth that we serve. Education is a critical deliverable for juvenile justice administrators and increasingly important to the youth’s positive outcomes and a successful reentry. It was the PYO’s Committees’ goal to share with our participants the message that the correctional education landscape is changing as we learn more about the importance of class room excellence, technology, effective re-entry, post -secondary strategies, special education and other key elements of a comprehensive educational system.

    We’re inviting you to the final webinar in this series. Our intention is to provide an interactive format where we will touch on critical points in the series and allow more time for questions that came up in the course of the prior presentations. Webinar participants are encouraged to use this platform to engage with the teams in your home states as you strategize areas for growth locally and statewide.
