Georgetown Diversion Certificate Program

The Georgetown University Center for Juvenile Justice Reform will be accepting applications for the Diversion Certificate Program until May 30, 2014.  The goal of the program is to “bring together individuals and teams of prosecutors, law enforcement officers, probation staff and other local leaders who are committed to strengthening their diversion efforts.”  The program “is designed for public and private sector leaders working in the juvenile justice, child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, education and other related systems of care that serve juvenile justice involved youth.”

The Diversion Certificate Program is one part of an overall goal to promote a juvenile justice system that: (1) is comprehensive and collaborative, (2) is balanced around public safety, offender accountability and competency development, (3) is trauma-informed, (4) uses the least-restrictive option that is necessary for the safety of the youth and the community, (5) is community-based, (6) is individualized and developmentally appropriate, (7) engages families and communities, and (8) is outcome-driven.
