Each year, the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) hosts a national conference uniquely focused on improving juvenile justice and delinquency prevention systems, services, practices and policies. More than 350 juvenile justice practitioners and advocates from across the U.S. and its territories are expected to attend. 
The full conference will take place on June 20-22. This year, the conference will focus on the latest research, developments, and challenges facing our field today. Specifically: 
                 ● How can states and communities serve as leaders in shaping a better juvenile justice system for our most vulnerable youth
                 ● How can we improve collaborations with young people with lived experiences in the systems we work with
                 ● What can be done to leverage partnerships to help improve physical and mental health services, and better address youths' needs for education and
                 ● What role does advocacy play as communities seek to improve services and provide for trauma-informed care for children and youth? 
If you have any questions, please contact Laura Armstrong, CJJ's Policy & Field Relations Associate, at armstrong@juvjustice.org

Carlisle Child Advocacy Award is presented by the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) annually to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to youth, to juvenile justice improvement efforts, or in the broader area of juvenile justice and delinquency prevention concerns. The Spirit of Youth Award recognizes and celebrate a young adult who overcame personal obstacles in his/her life, but is now making significant contributions to society.
