A webi­nar series will help juve­nile pro­ba­tion staff and lead­ers imple­ment a fam­i­ly-engaged case plan­ning mod­el in youth pro­ba­tion. Through this mod­el, pro­ba­tion offi­cers work in part­ner­ship with young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies to craft indi­vid­u­al­ized goals for the young person’s time on probation.

Pre­sent­ed by the Harley Con­sult­ing Group, with fund­ing from the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion, speak­ers will share their expe­ri­ences of youth pro­ba­tion as youth with direct expe­ri­ence of pro­ba­tion, advo­cates, par­ents and sys­tem professionals.

Part­ner­ing with fam­i­lies is not just the right thing to do, it is the more effec­tive way of strength­en­ing our abil­i­ty to stand togeth­er in sup­port of our youth,” said Jean­nette Bocane­gra-Simon, exec­u­tive direc­tor of Jus­tice for Fam­i­lies. On July 16, 2024, she will dis­cuss her expe­ri­ences as both an advo­cate for youth jus­tice reform and the moth­er of a young per­son with past involve­ment in the youth jus­tice system.

Reg­is­ter for the webinars

Those inter­est­ed are wel­come to reg­is­ter for one or both ses­sions. All reg­is­trants will receive a record­ing of the webinar(s).

What Will the Case-Plan­ning Webi­na­rs Cover?

Part 1, on July 16, will explore the impor­tance of focus­ing on rela­tion­ship-build­ing dur­ing the ini­tial stage of pro­ba­tion. Atten­dees will learn what meet­ing peo­ple where they are” looks like in prac­tice, includ­ing how to plan for the young person’s safe­ty and imme­di­ate needs.

Part 2, on Aug. 27, will delve into how to cre­ate indi­vid­u­al­ized goals for young people’s time on pro­ba­tion. These goals should build on the young person’s strengths and inter­ests in ways that pro­mote mean­ing­ful growth and accountability.
