Event Description
Transition has been defined as "a coordinated set of activities for the youth, designed within an outcome-oriented process, which promotes successful movement from the community to a correctional program setting, and from a correctional program setting to post-incarceration activities." As this definition conveys, a critical component of transition is coordination. Coordination requires individuals from multiple systems to work together to ensure that a youth involved in the juvenile justice system receives all of the needed support services throughout the process. Learning how to come together and effectively work with other agencies is essential to the educational and life outcomes of youth who are neglected, delinquent, or at-risk of school failure.

NDTAC’s upcoming Webinar, "Inter-agency Collaboration: An Innovative Transition Practice" will provide practical strategies to facilitate collaboration among agencies that provide services for youth transitioning through the juvenile justice system. To gain multiple viewpoints, presenters will provide strategies at both the State and local levels. Jane Young, Ph.D., Superintendent of the North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, will speak about facilitating collaboration among various agencies involved in transition. Tim Canter, Community Transition Specialist at Springfield Public Schools in Springfield, Oregon, will present transition strategies he uses in his work with the school district and local juvenile justice facilities. NDTAC’s Leslie Brock will facilitate and lead the discussion.

If you have any questions about the Live Meeting technology or the Webinar, please contact us at or your State Liaison.

Thank you,
