OJJDP Webinar on Family Engagement in Juvenile Justice

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), in coordination with the National Center for Youth in Custody, is pleased to invite you to attend the second webinar in a series on family engagement entitled:

Expanding on the Definition of Family and Engagement to Provide Better and More Effective Services
Date: Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST

In the first webinar in this series, expert panelists addressed the importance of engaging with families to ensure positive outcomes for youth in the justice system.  Building on that theme, this webinar will explore the definition of “family,” discuss what it means for agencies and practitioners to meaningfully “engage” with families, and offer strategies for involving and empowering families of court-involved youth.
