Dual Status Youth Symposium: Working Together for Our Children (Learn more!)
On April 5-6, 2016 the RFK National Resource Center will host its inaugural Dual Status Youth Symposium: Working Together for Our Children. This is the first of its kind national gathering of multi-disciplinary, youth-serving professionals to learn, network, and become part of the nationwide movement to improve outcomes for dual status youth. The Symposium provides a unique opportunity to experience and share the outstanding practice and policy progress made over the past fifteen years in addressing the challenges of effectively serving youth who touch both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.

Probation System Reform Symposium: Advancing Practice, Changing Lives (Learn more!)
On April 7-8, 2016 the RFK National Resource Center will host its inaugural Probation System Reform Symposium: Advancing Practice, Changing Lives. Juvenile justice system professionals from around the country are invited to attend this special event focusing on improving probation system performance and youth and family outcomes for those youth managed and overseen by our juvenile probation departments and court systems. The symposium will provide dynamic networking and interactive opportunities to learn from experienced colleagues about frameworks for effective probation practice, as well as challenges that confront practitioners and policymakers engaged in probation system reform.

Both events will feature the foremost experts on the topics of data and outcome measurement, risk-needs-responsivity screening and assessment, trauma, evidence-based interventions, and inter-agency collaboration. Participants will be given tools to formulate an action plan for realizing improved youth outcomes, as well as needed fiscal savings in their communities.
