The 3rd Annual Juvenile Probation Reform Academy (JPRA), developed exclusively for juvenile probation and parole professionals, will be held August 30-31, 2017 in New York, NY. The JPRA 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 will develop strategies for applying this research to their own agencies and will learn how to conduct a systematic review of agency policies, practices, and performance, and implement agency-wide reforms. The JPRA is developed in partnership by the Robert F. Kennedy National Resource Center for Juvenile Justice, the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) and the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and is being funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
