About the Training Series

Nearly half a million young people are given some form of probation annually. It serves as a critical gatekeeper to determine whether young people are placed in residential institutions. We welcome all training institute attendees to the opportunity to learn what juvenile probation transformation is, the urgency behind it, and its implications for day-to-day practice.

Additionally, this training series offers:

  • Seamless navigation
  • Accessible features
  • Interactive content
  • Asynchronous learning
  • 90-minute length (approx.) per course
  • Certificate upon course completion
The series is well designed and paced. It has a helpful combo of methods in which to engage with the material and I REALLY appreciate the links to resources as well as the interactive activities which is going to be super helpful in guiding us through the work.
Course 1: Introduction to Probation Transformation

Learn why juvenile probation transformation is needed, what it entails and how it can address racial inequities, support positive youth development, decrease confinement, and achieve better outcomes for youth, families, and communities.

Course 2A: Introduction to Racial Equality

Understand why transforming juvenile probation requires a commitment to racial equity and begin to explore how to achieve equitable results.

Course 2B: Racial Equality and Community Partnership

Discover how partnership between public systems and communities, most directly affected by the justice system, helps center racial equity in probation.

Course 3: The Adolescent Brain and Youth Development

Learn what is developmentally appropriate for young people based on the ongoing maturation process of the brain. This course offers important context for teen behavior and probation transformation.

Course 4: Youth Partnership and Positive Youth Justice

Explore the core principles and practices of Positive Youth Justice (PYJ), a strengths-based, relationship-focused approach to working with youth in the justice system. PYJ is grounded in broader concepts of youth voice and positive youth development and is central to probation transformation.

Course 5: Family Partnership

See what authentic family engagement looks like, why it is a necessary part of probation transformation, and what steps individuals and agencies — in partnership with families themselves — can take to bring it to life.

Course 6: Introduction to Trauma (coming soon)

Recognize what trauma is, how it shows up, and why it is necessary to understand its impact when working with youth and families and setting out to transform youth justice practices.

Course 7: Organizational Culture (coming soon)

Understand how a department’s values and other aspects of organizational culture — including the broader system in which the department operates — can support probation transformation.
