This Year's Theme

The theme for the 2020 Winter Training Institute is Safer Communities: Belief is the Foundation of Success. Steps to success begin by believing in people – believing they have the capacity to do good work. Clearly, adult and juvenile justice practitioners intend to excel in their craft and provide fitting programs, services, and resources to clients and communities. Although experiencing unique challenges, practitioners embrace justice transformation, sensible policies, and innovative and evidence-based practices. They are committed to this work, they are honing their skills, seeking the right combination of tools needed to assist clients – confident of their ability to navigate the road map of success. The work rests firmly on the foundation of belief – belief in this industry’s impact on public safety, because safer communities are important to everyone.


The American Probation and Parole Association’s 2020 Winter Training Institute offers an interactive learning experience for professionals involved in the community corrections, juvenile justice, and treatment professions in the United States, its territories, and other countries. Through workshops, intensive sessions, general session speakers, and the Resource Expo, our training institute provides knowledge and tools to help shape the future of community corrections by meeting the needs of today’s professionals. There is no better event at which to network and learn from fellow community corrections professionals and have access to the most current and vital information available about state of the art products, services, and technologies!
