Juvenile Probation Reform Academy
Contracting Agency: OJJDP

The American Probation and Parole Association (APPA), the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, and the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice partnered to establish a Juvenile Probation Reform Academy for juvenile probation and parole leaders and managers. The Juvenile Probation Reform Academy is designed to instruct probation and parole directors and managers on the core principles demonstrated by research to reduce recidivism and improve other outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system. Participants are provided assistance in developing strategies for applying this research to their own agencies and learn how to conduct a systematic review of agency policies, practices, and performance, and implement agency-wide reforms. Funds under this award helped support the delivery of the first Juvenile Probation Reform Academy, in conjunction with the APPA Annual Training Institute, in July 2015.
