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. 
This year's conference will focus on the latest research, developments, and challenges facing our field today. Specifically: 

  • What lessons have we learned from Covid-19, and how can we use those lessons to create a new normal that works better for our young people and communities? 
  • How can systems collaborate with one another to more holistically address young peoples' needs? 
  • 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 role does advocacy play as communities seek to improve services and provide for trauma-responsive care for children and youth?

CJJ 2022 Annual Awards
Nominate a leader in our field today! CJJ is currently accepting nominations for our 2022 Annual Awards, including the A.L. Carlisle Award, Spirit of Youth Award, and Tony Gobar Award. The A.L. 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. Each year, the Spirit of Youth Award, meanwhile, is given by the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) to recognize and celebrate a young person who overcame personal obstacles in his/her life, but is now making significant contributions to society. The Tony Gobar Award, named in honor of the late Tony Gobar, a long-time Juvenile Justice Specialist from Mississippi, serves as a way for the Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) to recognize a state Juvenile Justice Specialist who has exemplified excellence in service to others; has been dedicated and committed to improving the juvenile justice system; and has demonstrated compassion and concern for youth and advocates.
