Apply Now for the Youth in Custody Practice Model Initiative

CJJR, in partnership with the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA), is currently accepting applications for the third round of the Youth in Custody Practice Model (YICPM) initiative. Launched in 2016, the initiative is designed to assist state and county juvenile correctional agencies and facility providers to implement a comprehensive and effective approach to serving youth in residential care.

Informed by research on “what works” in serving youth in custody, as well as professional standards and the field’s preeminent thinking on best practices, CJJR, CJCA and a team of experts will provide up to four participating sites with 18 months of training and technical assistance (TTA) to implement the YICPM. This TTA is geared to help organizations align core, research-based principles with everyday practice, and achieve positive outcomes for youth, families, staff and communities.

Please visit our website for detailed information about the YICPM initiative, including how to apply and testimonials from the sites participating in the initial two cohorts.

Applications will be accepted through January 11, 2019. Please direct questions to Darlene Conroy at or (781) 843-2663.
