JDAIcon­nect Log-on Instruc­tions for New Users

Thou­sands of peo­ple use JDAIcon­nect for its cred­i­ble resources on juve­nile jus­tice reform and train­ing on demand,” says Nate Balis, direc­tor of the Foundation’s Juve­nile Jus­tice Strat­e­gy Group. But it’s the mutu­al sup­port and col­lec­tive wis­dom with­in the com­mu­ni­ty that make it invalu­able, espe­cial­ly for prac­ti­tion­ers respond­ing to COVID-19.”

User engage­ment on JDAIcon­nect grew in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic took hold in the Unit­ed States. We hope to keep up the momen­tum in the weeks and months ahead,” Balis says. Not only are juve­nile jus­tice agen­cies adjust­ing their poli­cies and prac­tices to lim­it the spread of COVID-19, they are also seek­ing to sus­tain changes that lim­it the use of con­fine­ment, Balis notes.

The val­ue of JDAIcon­nect is that users can:

  • Reach out to a net­work of juve­nile jus­tice reform­ers doing sim­i­lar work and fac­ing sim­i­lar chal­lenges — in places near and far — for advice, cama­raderie, peer sup­port or inspiration.
  • Find webi­na­rs, videos, pre­sen­ta­tions and more on numer­ous aspects of juve­nile jus­tice reform, includ­ing trans­form­ing juve­nile pro­ba­tion and reduc­ing youth incarceration.
  • Access train­ing on demand on sub­jects such as sup­port­ing LGBTQI youth in the juve­nile jus­tice system.

JDAIcon­nect is open to every­one, regard­less of par­tic­i­pa­tion in JDAI, and free of charge. The Casey Foun­da­tion has part­nered with the Pre­tri­al Jus­tice Insti­tute to devel­op and man­age JDAIconnect.

To start, first-time users will need to cre­ate an account with the Casey Foun­da­tion’s Grantee and Part­ners Por­tal, a sign-on ser­vice pow­ered by Okta. Once reg­is­tered, vis­it the Apps” sec­tion and request access to JDAIcon­nect. The Casey Foundation’s tech­nol­o­gy helpdesk is avail­able to sup­port users.
